Let It Be: Changes

It Should've Been Me

It Should’ve Been Me (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A restaurant that removed your favorite item from the menu, a bad cover of a great song… Write a post about something that should’ve been left untouched, but wasn’t. Why was the original better?

I wanted no changes in me.

I was comfortable in my own skin.

You could even term me insular, perhaps.

No extreme roads for me,

I would transition gradually.

But now that’s all past,

Nature and man have wreaked their mark.

And the soul that now inhabits my body,

Hardly recognises the stranger in me.

Yet, it finds me in everybody!

—Linus Fernandes.
