What have I become? (S)

What have I become?

A young boy of tender age, I was
Our lives were simpler;
through the window of my dining room
beyond the horizon, I saw a rainbow
and, clouds like the  snowflakes
though, the clouds often poured upon us
and, we sank in the troubles unknown
aloft, I had held my dreams.

Now that I have grown up
I wonder, what have I become?
Bleak has become the twinkle of my eyes
hopeless the days
forlorn the nights
