There was a time when you did not pay attention to what we had to say
But now, it’s you who craves for our attention.
There was a time when you thought being nice to us wasn’t the best thing to do
But now, you feel the complete opposite.
There was a time when you didn’t like the way we did things
But now, the things you do irritate us.
There was a time when everything was fine and happy
But now, there’s this mutual dislike that everyone knows exists but no one voices it.
There was a time when we were all so tolerant of one another
But now, it doesn’t seem to be the case.
There was a time when we looked forward to your special recipes
But now, they don’t seem special to us anymore.
Why is it that the times then were so much better than the times now? Why have we grown so intolerant of one another? Were the things that we now notice still present then? It’s sad how the tables turn, making the situation the complete opposite of what it used to be.
