But, if I go back, would I want it still?

This is from the point of view of one of my characters, Hoshi, from my story These Four Walls. Because I couldn't think fo anythign else to write.

Seasons change,
And so have I,
Once upon a far away time,
This smile upon my lips was true,
And my rage would never hurt you,
Innocence? I took that away myself,
Risked everything, played a game with stealth,
When around others that I didn’t know,
I was louder, brighter, the most vibrant of all,
But now my reflection holds a pink tinted shadow,
With fear drenched purple eyes,
Objects flung at mirrors, I fracture my reflection,
My shaking body yearns for more action,
Of which kind, I appear to have forgotten,
And I long since have left that life behind,
But now the dancing stars of hatred hit,
They leave behind shimmering dust traced scars,
But still I make a wish to the stars,
That I could be more like the old me again,
And keep up a lifestyle that I can’t defend,
But, if I go back, would I want it still?
My actions, either way, could surely kill,
But my immortal body craves this experiment,
And my thought process is twisted and bent,
With closed eyes, I admit that I am defeated,
With open eyes, I decide that I can’t be beaten.
