I Need To Escape Sometimes

Have I changed or has everybody else changed?
I have asked myself this question a lot lately.
I still look sort of the same.
I still act kind of the same.
I am still the same person inside,
but for some reason I feel different about life.

People around me seem to have changed.
Loved ones are not the same any more.
They're older and oh so serious.
They're grumpy and dissastified.

Young ones are full of enthusiasm,
They're mainly interested in their own
crowd, I remember I was like that too.

I feel so very confused,
I want so badly to escape but I can't.
I am expected to stay,
It's my duty to stay.
I have to stay for now.

Maybe in the long run I will become
much stronger and wiser.

I hope so.......

I can't give you the same in-depth response like romanticdreams but i can say i get it. you don't feel like you've changed but the world does and it seems to treat you differently all of a sudden, now your stuck in the same place you always were only it feels like a different dimension. It seems like things are changing and moving way to fast, all you want to do is scream at them asking "whats going on?" they don't feel like them anymore. You feel alone. It's weird right? Makes you wonder where you want your life to go, what you want to do. They're still the people you care about, that doesn't change, so you can't leave them..but still. It feels like you need to.

It is wonderful how you express yourself, could see you sitting on the beach, asking these questions to yourself, evaluating yourself, looking inside your soul. As we walk the journey of life, we come across things that define who we are as a person, struggles we have, shape and form us, exciting times can do the same but do believe it's the hard time that form the most beautiful peeks in our lives. Look at the mountains, the glaciers, formed through such force, they are a beauty to behold and not one is the same, they are unique.
