before

I always meant to do that
but I am just me and it
is such a big undertaking
there is no way I can
accomplish it now, maybe
before
maybe I could have been
more, back then, maybe
I could have been something
instead of what I am, which
is still something, I guess,
but it is less than what I
was, you know, before
