Impossible is just an excuse for people who have given up.- My older brother

I’ve noticed lately the gleam is gone from yours eyes
And gone is your usual cheerfulness
You’ve been distant
No longer pausing to smell the flowers outside
Rushing, forgetting
Things that used to be important
Now you pass without a glance
Now you wear dark clothes
Now you never smile
Where’s the real you?
Why hide her?
The real you wouldn’t
You’ve turned fake
No longer the real you

This has a great story to it! People are always changing and in your mind you always ask that question. Very nice job!
