I'm Changing

Ashamed of things that aren’t shameful

Embarrassing by things not embarrassing

You feel my pain but then you don’t

Challenging what I refuse

No idea you’ve lit a fuse

You wonder why I change so quickly

Can’t see I’m growing into myself

Asking who are you to more than one

Changing ways, changing views

And you may not like the news

Questioning: one of the things I’m good for

If it’s not in your agenda then I’m not supposed to care

There is so much more I can be, with all my crazy antics

In the end I may have to choose

And you my friend will finally know what it’s like to lose
