The years have quickly gone by
time seems like an illusion.
A gobbled up time of events
that has been swallowed up by quick sand.
Memories are not the same as they were 365 days ago.
They've grown, got bigger,
new faces have been added, new places have seen.
The course of life has changed so drastically,
Friends are not the same as they were 365 days ago.
New acquaintances, ones that brighten up the day
New enemies, for whom my memories have fade
The experience of life has grown, new things are in my view.
Innocence is not the same as it was 365 days ago.
Experiencing the pain of lost love can change you.
A broken heart is heard from all around the world.
Language has changed, it's become more violent.
Thoughts have become more soothing.
Family is not the same as they were 365 days ago.
Economy has shattered them, broke their spirits.
Heads once held high have dropped down low,
Attitude has changed for the worse.
Goals are not the same as they were 365 days ago.
A once confused person,
Has grown up to be someone focused on life.
One that hopes and dreams for college.
A better life, so that way growing up wont be so hard.
Life is not the same as it was 365 days ago.
It has been beaten and bruised,
But still decides to shine through the pain.
It's been a rough time
But I wouldn't change the memories for anything.
