Change

I sit here 

eyes squinted.


motionless to the division

I listen


to the crickets chirp

they lurk


on the ground we walk

I talk


of becoming a better person 

conversion


from the two things I love the most 

we toast


to forgetting the past and a bright future

you sure?


I'll be everything you want me to be

you won’t flee?


when times get harder

we’re smarter


than the expectations of society

sobriety


will be what keeps us together

clever


are those who think they know better

fetter


of ignorance will detain those who believe

that we've


not yet justified our actions through experience.
