When I Was Happy - Poem by mithzi silva

When I was happy,
I was able to smile
I was able to show myself for who I really am
When I was happy
I was able to be myself
I never would have let myself fall in so many areas
Why is it that now I can’t?
Why can’t I shine the way I used to?
Why don’t I succeed anymore?
Why don’t I fly high anymore?
How was it that you were able to change me with something so simple as a smile?
When I was happy
Why didn’t I think what that smile meant?
Why didn’t I do what I had to when I had the chance?
When I was happy
Why didn’t I see the truth?
When I was happy
Were you happy?
When I was happy…
Was I truly happy?

    This is really good, it reminds me of a way I felt before, as well as now.
    I like it a lot...
