Why does high school change people?

You have kids that are mean to you when you're younger, and you have your friends.

Then those friends turn into the mean ones.

My parents don't always let me out, I don't know why.

Perhaps they're trying to keep me in a blanket of comfort because I've been hurt before.

I wish I had a key to unlock all the answers to my questions.

Why do people forget?

Why do people cheat?

Why does high school change people?

I have a mirror, and I see my reflection.

But do I really see myself?

I realize even I have changed over the years - maybe I'm that "friend" of someone else.

Shining saphire, the big blue, the ocean - people are like the waves - coming and going.

Wake up.

This is the real world.
