Change

There’s a million things you can’t change,
A thousand where the outcome remains the same
A hundred ways to breathe
A dozen ways to smile
Two ways to think

You can’t stop gravity from holding us down
You can’t change the color of the sky
You can’t see the wind
You can’t hold a knife to a statues neck
And so many more things that I can’t even think of

You can wear a different shirt, where the person underneath stays the same
You can throw away your trash but you won’t stop the earth when it shakes
You can throw away a hundred friendships and have not solved the true

In, slow through your nose
Like it matters if anyone’s watching us
Fast, like the wind that changed with your words
Breathing away, I’m afraid to remember what it feels like to be full

You can smile because you saw something funny
Or because someone’s embrace
You can smile knowing you did you part
Or because it is your better face

It’s either all in
Or all out
And in regards to our time,
It’s the latter
