i still don’t know if people change

my perspective is changing

maybe it’s the arizona heat

or maybe it’s new opportunities

but my perspective is changing.

no i’m not mad

with changes come a little sadness

but i’ll see where this path takes me

feel like i’ve been given a new key

and there’s about 20 doors i haven’t opened

so i’ll take my time, better not jump in

because i know my life will amount to something

no more doubts or worries

my hope is water, and i’m thirsty.


I came back to Arizona and felt shifts all around me. I hung up the same poster in my room from last year, but recently it feels like there's a different person looking at it. I've heard that people change. I don't know if that's true. Do people change or do their perspectives?
