It has not been easy

As time goes by

Year after year

I have seen myself change


Change has not been easy

Friends come and go

Family is not the same

Life continues to go on


I do not feel the same

As I was from two years ago

Looking back at my old myself

I have questioned myself what happened


Sometimes, change can be good

Other times, it can be bad

As life continues to go on

Change happens to the best of us
