I am
For the change to come-
Like the seeds of a dandelion getting thrown
Regrowing in a new place.

I am
Falling apart,
At the thought of a million new faces-
Like an old letter
Stashed at the bottom of a drawer.

I am
Afraid to face a world I will soon leave-
Like the caterpillar sheltered away
Before it alters its life forever.

I am
At the pain that has become routine-
Like a gambler never folding
Never facing an addiction.

Change: The only thing as sure as tomorrows sunrise.

I will be
Like I always have been.
Like I always will be.

It seems really depressing, I mean, no offense intended, it's really great and I know how you feel, I moved across the country last year, but it makes me want to cry.

well that was the point im glad my poem properly conveyed my emotion and made at least one of my readers feel my emotion while writing it / feel their own emotion because of it

Good piece, I really like it and I totally love the last stanza that's my favourite coz many times I find myself saying that! It's relatable and that means a tonne..

Love this poem! It's very creative, and I like the examples you used to convey each emotion that you felt. Great job :)

I like the structure and how this poem kind of tells a story and how they can get through it like they always do.

That's AWESOME. I like the form and word choices. And I like the ending.

"I will be okay. Like i always have been. Like I always will." That's awesome. I like optimism at the end of almost anything. Very nice. 5/5
