I once was

I once was a kid
but now i am a teen
i used to love to laugh
and now i hardly smile

i once was a fighter
but now i am a lover
i will turn away a fight
unless you attack my heart

i once was a pup
but now i am a wolf
as i work to build my mind
i also work to build my strength

i once was a firey blaze
but now i am a cooling ember
i used to burn with hate
but now i burn with love

i once was an artist
but now i am a poet
i used to draw how i felt
but now i write how i feel

    Great show of your transformation. I can relate with basically all of it. I especially liked the last stanza.

    We should never burn with rage but always with love, for that is what the great Lord has given us. I can also relate to this poem and you take my breath away with your works. Keep on going...
