I Used to Be
J.Sierra Elementary School
I used to be a shark but now I’m a piranha
I used to be a small town but now I am a big country
I used to be clouds but now I am the sun
I used to be a fall leaf but now I am a blooming flower
I used to be violence but now I am peace
I used to be dull but now I am a smiley face
I used to be plain but now I am the rainbow
I used to be a dollar but now I’m a ruby red diamond
I used to be a sunset but now I am the sunrise.
