You were born an origanal why die a copy?The secret to success is the consistency to pursue.To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.To receive the right answer,you must ask the right question.Don't worry be happy! :)

I saw you today,
But you're not as I remember.
Your eyes no longer sparkle,
You've changed since last September.

You were so full of life,
Yet now you are so cold.
Your personality has tarnished,
When you once had a heart of gold.

You fell out of my life,
Just like leaves in the fall.
We were so very close,
Now you're not here at all.

You saw me today,
I'm the same as you remember.
My eyes still sparkle,
I've not changed since last September.

Isn't it so sad when you see an old friend and their whole personality and outlook on life has changed...and not for the good. Well that's what inspired me for this poem...I hope you enjoyed it

But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.

I think this poem speaks to alot of people, including me. Sometimes you don't realize things about a person you thought you knew until a large amount of time has passed. It happens.

"I admire the concept of selling your soul for the sake of an unforgettable performance"

I can relate to this poem...this guy who I've had a huge crush on since 7th grade used to be the sweetest guy and my sophomore year in HS I hadn't seen much of him at all, Junior year I realized he is now very arrogant and self centered. It breaks my heart. He never used to be like this.
