At age 5

At age 5
I wanted to be an artist
I drew everywhere
I felt alive.
By age 8
I wanted to dance
So I danced
I felt great.
Once I turned 10
I wanted to act
So I lied a lot
But I changed yet again.
When I was 13
I wanted to be known
I talked to everyone
But no one called my phone.
At 16
I wanted love
So I slept around
I wasn't as peaceful as a dove
Now I'm 20
And I just want someone
I'm alone. Surprised?
I thought my life was fun.
Well I guess I've know
Along I was
Only good for a sad song.

(Last line is from a song, but do you know which one?)
