Change Must Be Faced

I did not want to become the person I am today. 
I was just an innocent young girl until one day,
Reality hit me like a storm.
 
Reality was never a part of my life until I entered the stage of adolescence.
High school was filled with guided lessons and a bit of common sense.
Thought was my only friend. 
 
I realized that life doesn't always go the way you want it to,
Nor does it reveal to you what is false and what is true. 
Life is a difficult creature. 
 
As I grew up I knew the world to be a gentle place,
But I was proven wrong when I was replaced.
Friendship is a hard concept to grasp. 
 
I had a best friend until she left me alone in the dark. 
It was then when I realized I had to start a new arc.
Beginnings is what started it all. 
 
Ever since then I moved on and began to change my ways. 
I became someone people could keep or put away. 
Two Faces were my specialty. 
 
It had always been like a scene in a play,
where the actors would smile and happily dance away.
Acts were what carried me through the years.
 
Finally, I have reached my final years of high school,
and I have begun to think that acting for others isn't very cool. 
Happiness should come to you first before others.  
 
Unfortunately change is necessary in life,
and with change there will always be a little bit of strife. 
Therefore I say Change must always be faced directly.
