Everyone's Around Us

Everyone's around us
Their very thoughts surround us
It streamlines and passes through us
Words and phrases that outgrew us

Conversations weave and blend
Like one long word with no end
Trends evade our tread
Though we step firmly with feet of lead

We remain who we are
It wasn't us who raised the bar
Society changes its ways constantly
In the process, leaving you and me
