I miss being the Old me! -_-

Woman-in-hijab-on-roof

I miss being the old me

Who used to be the Jolly bee!

One who loved spending every moment with my family

Loved to talk and sing all bubbly!

I miss being the old me

Who used to be the jolly bee!


One who cherished doing what my parents decreed,

Loathing the idea of making anyone bleed!

The one who made my parent’s smile,

Leaving no stones unturned to be loved by all, down the aisle!

I miss being the old me

Who used to be the jolly bee!


The one who enjoyed every moment with my cousins,

Sharing even the slightest secret with my mommy as if they were muffins!

One who smiled with no worries attached,

No lies lingering behind all naughtiness we patched!

I miss being the old me

Who used to be the jolly bee!


One whom I now look behind at and regret having changed,

Asking myself the one question repeatedly, Who is this new Me all estranged!

I miss being the old me

Who used to be the jolly bee!

  1. I like the pairing of the flying-free, brightly-colored bee with remembrance of things past (to paraphrase Foucault and Shakespeare). I like your use of assonant rhyme in pairings such as “cousins” and muffins” (consonant rhyme, too). The photograph makes the first lines read like graffiti, which is thought-provoking. Overall, here, you make us think. And feel. Thanks!

    Oh this is beautiful, I feel like you wrote exactly what’s on my mind subhan’Allah… I miss the old me.. Who was good to her parents, her cousins & all her family.. I miss them. You know, I really hurted them when I converted to islam & they’re all mad at me since. But alhamdoulillah I’m satisfied with my life, even if I’m nostalgic when I think about them. I really hope you feel better sis…
    May Allah protect you

                Hehee, I can understand, when you’re not married yet, you can’t feel what true love is. I ised to think I was being too romantic & love didn’t really exist 😉
