i used to be a loser

but now they say i’m cool

i used to be too uptight

but with them i break the rules


i used to work hard

but now we slack off

i used to have my path

but with them i get lost


i used to be an optimist 

but they leave me broken down

i used to be a princess

but they said to shed my crown


i used to be a ray of sun

but i find them in the cold

i used to have my morals

but i’ve sunk to a hellish low


i used to think that friends

were there to lift you up

but now i’ve let my friends

slip poison in my cup

A poem that I wrote while feeling guilty about the person I've become due to having toxic friends.
