I'm me
I'm not me
I love you
I so not love you
Best friend
Why in the world
do I change?

I used to love the old me
Now i like the new me
Some people hate it
My best friends love it

is all over
You change
I change
Everyone changes
But why?

People say we are like a caterpillar
dangling in our cocoons
we either change
or we fall
and we are never the same again

Another truthful poem! People do change alot. The way you compared it to a caterpiller was really cool.

Impossible is not a word, it's just a reason for someone not to try.

This is really good and relateable. 5 stars.
