The Diary of Me by Candi Vandegrift
What happened to the girl who danced like no one was watching?
What happened to the girl who sang like no one could hear?
I seem to have lost her along the way.
How do I get her back? I don’t even know where to start.
What happened to the girl who gave her whole heart and nothing less?
What happened to the girl whose passion was equal only to her stubbornness?
Well, I guess the stubbornness remains, but where is the passion?
Being just fine has become good enough.
I used to eat, breath, and taste life.
I would leap before looking…and it felt great.
I wanted to try everything at least once and travel the world.
Now my world may as well be a box.
Did I lose that girl when I became sick?
Did I lose her when the passion became fire and she got burned?
But, I need to get back to her; she is a part of me.
And without that part, I will never be complete.
