I used to be a princess, swarthed in shimmering pink,
But now I sit in shadows, holding my own bitter drink.
I used to be the child goddess, raised up on high,
But now I have grown up, too heavy for my dais to fly.
I used to be a champion, holding my head up proudly,
But now I am a regret, they shout my disgrace loudly.
I used to be at the top, for I never was mistaken,
But now I lay low in the ditch, being utterly forsaken.
I used to be the hope for the entire human race,
But now I am shamed, afraid to even show my face.
I used to have treasures, piled up high to the sky,
But now I have been stripped of glory, left on the side to die.
