USED TO BE THIS – USED TO BE THAT!

I used to be this and I used to be that.

But I am no longer this and no longer that.

I used to be carefree and go with the flow

Now the flow is a trickle.

I used to feel young and easy to please.

Now being easy to please is a chore.

I used to sing in the shower.

Now I worry about using too much hot water.

I used love to walk in the rain.

Now I focus on the thunder.

I used to think the best of everyone.

Now I think everyone just thinks about themselves.

I used to think life was so exciting.

Now I think life is just too hard.

I used to love to travel everywhere and anywhere.

Now just to pack a suitcase is work.

I used to love to walk on the beach.

Now I think about how hot the sand is.

I used to be this…used to be that.

But I am no longer this and no longer that.
