A Change So Subtle MAG

By Kelly M., Sacramento, CA

     I used to think that
Were I to lose my mind
It’d happen all in one instant.
My views on love and anger -
Things that make me myself.
Someone so different that my friends would
Notice the change and find
Themselves shocked to be pushed away.
But I was wrong.
It happens slowly.
You change over time
By simply
Growing new opinions.
On love and anger -
Things that make you yourself.
And your friends don’t stop
And notice the change with surprise.
You push them away slowly as
You shift from old to new ... and
After enough time you finally
Step back
And consider
How you used to be ... and
You’ve lost your mind.
