Past Beauty - Poem by Colleen Courtney
I'm not the girl I used to be
That girl has gone away.
Where did she go? I do not know,
She simply went astray.
Her life once full of happiness
Of bright and sunny days,
An optimistic outlook
So hopeful, glad and gay.
But now so full of sadness
So gloomy, dark and gray.
No sunshine can break through these walls
Of hopeless, bitter days.
This girl was once so beautiful
Vivacious, proud and tall,
But now she sees just ugliness
In the mirror on my wall.
