The Change

so something interesting happened today

i was chatting with a friend
and he said something
that opened the door
for my ego to come in

and i let it
i gave it voice

so it sang its most favorite song
the same broken record
the same old victim story
that it’s been telling me for years

and while i was listening to it
a new realization came in

i suddenly saw
that none of it
was true

none of it
fit me any longer

just like the clothes
that we’ve outgrown
or the style
that we abandoned ages ago
all my hackneyed complaints
suddenly felt forced
and made-up

they suddenly ceased to represent
what i now believed to be true

we have grown apart

that’s fascinating
i thought
and it’s good to know

i guess i really have changed
