Change

It’s unbelievably
Inconceivable how
Quickly
Everything can
Change
I already know
Just who
I am going to
Lose
And
Who I will
Refuse to let
Disappear from
My life
People have come and went
Some because I have
Left them behind
For all I want to be
To them is
A happy
Beautiful
Fleeting
Memory
I want
The ghost of me to
Dance through the
Shadowed chambers of
Their minds
As they spiral through
The rich mazes
Of
Mine
Never meeting with
The many others who
Glide and crawl and scream
Through my thoughts
Each like
Individual
Sharp
Bittersweet
Bolts of
Lighting
They each have their own
Separate
Storms within my
Conscious
It’s amazing how
Quickly
Everything can
Change
How I can
Look in the mirror
Today
And see a
Completely different
Girl
Tomorrow
Will she smile
At the glass
Contentedly?
Or will she
Thrust out her
Fist at the
Smooth surface
Shattering her reflection
Hating
Loathing
Despising what she
Sees?
Each day
Such change comes
So
Easily
And as time passes
Everything becomes
Less and less
Consistent
For the
Older you grow
It seems
The more often it is
That
You do not have
Anyone or
Any hope to
Lean on
As you grow stronger
Taller and
Gain knowledge of the
World
You begin to learn
How to live and love
Genuinely
Without
Relying on
Someone else
Because there have been
Far too many times
In which the trembling hand that
Strangled yours with its
Comforting grip as it was
Protecting you
Saving you
Preventing you
From
Drowning
Slipping beneath the
Surface of your own
Exhaustion
Was ripped away
Leaving you to
Fight your own
Way to the
Ever distant
Shore
It is truly remarkable
How this change can either
Overwhelm you or
If you
Treat it
Correctly
Make you into someone much more
Beautiful and
Wiser than
Before
