Thoughts on the theme of ‘Change’

Today I saw a change in my behavior
Something was different about me
I engaged myself thinking about things
Things that no normal 15-year-old should be thinking about
A sign of maturity caught my eye as I began to pursue what was the most important thing to me, my family
Family has always been the ones to comfort you when your sailing low in your cloudy thoughts
And find a way to bring you to sanity
Your family are the people in your life that you look to for advice and support
Today, something out of the ordinary embraced my daily life
And I was shot down with a dark bolt of lightning that got me to realize
What meant the most to me and how to pursue it
The little things in life mean the most to people
And you don't realize how much you care about that special one until the day they don't exist anymore
The day they are revoked from the world
These small things are just so sentimental to the heart that sometimes
It's the only thing that keeps your heart ticking
Finding the right way to approach your flaws is key
The hardest part of growing up is finding a way to break free
Finding a way of letting go what you're used to
And moving on with something you're not
Change in your life isn't always easy to pursue
Turning your back on things that your used to
Or even things that you found thrilling can turn to a wild depression state of mind
Change in your life isn't always easy to soak in
Knowing when the time is right
Knowing when the heart is ready
Knowing when the brain is stable
All key factors in changing you see
There is a time and a place for everything in this world
There is a moment in life of willingness to proceed in life
To be the best you can be
Change in your life isn't always easy to pursue
The answers in life you wish to seek
Are only a footstep away, a footstep closer to happiness
The true meaning of change isn't to leave behind your worries like nothing happened
The true meaning of change is the willingness in your heart to be the best you can be
The true meaning of change is you
