Life Caused It

I’m not sure what’s wrong with me.
I remember how I use to be so care free.
Not a single thing would affect me.
The happiest of me,
were the long ago me.
Now I’m just losing sight of everything.
Playing pretend,
Faking a smile,
Being the best I could be for those around me.
Is truly taking a toll on me.
I wish…
I could be the old me…
