Change

You make a change in your life,
To go and make things right.
All the signs seem to point you in a certain direction,
And you believe this as no misconception.
People see the change and some get scared,
For they don’t know how much you care.
The people who were once there for you
Now go and leave too.
They don’t like to imagine this change as being true,
Because it changes the person they once knew.
You make that adjustment and have a change of heart
To now give yourself a new start.
