Liliana EL.


Then and Now


A while back I said I had no friends
Looking on today it's everyone

Back then saying hi was a struggle, a great feat
Now it's only natural for me

I said that I don't know their names
Only faces that are unclaimed

Now I can say I know them all
I can say that we are friendly

Laughing alongside playfully
Sitting and smiling next to each

Gotta gotta get me some more

    This takes me back to my first day of high school when I didn`t know anybody, but now we have some great memories.

    Cool portrayal of metamorphosis. Nicely created, a real identifiable piece. I came out of the dark as well. (Report) Reply
