in life




one is always





changing



our bodies and minds


turn from new to old





and with age



needful to needed
(only to become needful once more)




we mold to fit in



adapt to survive



evolve to exist

and lately i’ve begun wondering



who i really am


i’ve marched through life


without watching myself





and i’ve begun


(as a reaction to a challenge)





to change


from costume to costume




and lie to lie



but never myself
