About the Poem
I wrote this when I was in a deep depression about all of my friends leaving off to college the next year. It was my own way of describing my feelings to myself, and my own way of telling myself that my time will come.

Open your arms to change, but please donít lose yourself
You are what makes you who you are in sickness and in health
A friendly atmosphere has made you who you are to be
Your character is in charge and will control your destiny
Youíll go someplace youíve never gone, youíll make your mark again,
You will reset your standards, and sure will make new friends
As soon as today is yesterday your heart will always give
I hope you wonít regret today, cause your future longs to live
If our paths donít cross again, I wonít forget this day
Cause Iím afraid of change, Iím scared to shift my ways
My eyes will see things theyíve never seen, but Iíve always been here
The time that counts your moments gone will teach me not to fear.
Youíll look upon your life and see familiar grounds
Youíll hear the call of memories and recognize the sound
All the lives you change will make stars disappear
And as youíre settled down, youíll realize youíve never left here.
