Sure I've changed, but...

2016
A strange year indeed
I've grown closer into an adult
from a small child in need

And sure I've changed a lot
but how much can really be new?
could I be a whole new person
could that really be true?

I still believe what I've believed in
I still look and act the same
I still spend too much time on the computer
I still play my little games

what I do though is slightly different
the way I see and think about the what's around me
I think maybe the world is the one that's changing
and so is the person I can be

A lot of stragne things happened
from Russia to a gorilla to Trump
everyone wants to look at this year
and amongst other years call it a dump

But I think this year we've all learned
and come out wiser and stronger
this may not have been everyone's year
but at least we'll all come out stronger
