I used to be...A poem

I used to be
tough and righteous
Adults gasped
At the little girl
Of steal and spit

I used to be
caped crusader
Foreigners threatened
At the little girl
Of mystery and fame

I used to be
new miss thing
Locals envied
At the little girl
Of worldly style

I used to be
woman of stone
Family wondered
At the little girl
Who shed no tears

I used to be
bitter and sweet
People confused
At the little girl
Who was too much

I used to be
selfishly selfless
Everyone comforted by
The little girl
Who cared too much
