Let go and live.

Thing fade
People change,
And things you though
Would always be,
Are becoming no more than a distant memory.
You struggle to keep hold
Of what you once held so true,
So thigh, and so dear.
You fight the future,
From becoming the now
And cling the past that’s becoming no more.
You’re afraid of the change,
Terrified of what you don’t know.
But as the future moves forward,
Becoming the now.
You have no choice but
To move with the change.
Change of scenery,
Change of friend, change of pace.
The change of anything
That you can live with to let go of.
Change is good,
Change is growth.
Change is you becoming you.
Don’t fight it
But face it fearlessly.
With no regrets
And with determination.
Change will always happen.
It’s in the future, the past,

This poem has a very powerful message behind it. Nicely written. It's a bit choppy, but that can be fixed by you looking over the poem again. Also, I feel like the last line doesn't need to be capitalized to make it sound strong. Good job! C:

Occasional grammatical/spelling errors, but this is a strong, relatable message. Rhyming throughout rather than in one place would be better, but whatever suits you. I'd suggest staying away from exclamation marks, they can come across as a little childish. Other than this, this is a strong message and with relatable soundness. Adding imagery would help stress your point.

This could have been better, I think, if you went over it and edited it. It has a few superfluous lines and some grammatical and spelling issues. It would have a much stronger message and flow if it was more typographically correct.
