“You’re not the same”, they say
But now I am confused
“You’ve really changed”, they say
I thought that’s what I was supposed to do.
The moment I left for college
I knew my choice was right
Trust me, I’ve acknowledged
The way I am tonight.
This year I’ve made the closest friends
In just a few short months
And from all the time that we would spend
It’s like we’ve become one.
I also lost some friendships
That could not be repaired
But believe me when I say
That I will always care.
I joined a sorority
But it’s not what you think
Everyone thinks we all just party
They don’t look at the true meaning.
“Together, let us seek the heights”
Is our amazing motto
This sisterhood is what feels right
Somehow I just know.
The most important change of all
Is I finally open up
I don’t keep to myself anymore
I’ll go and I’ll just talk.
I can go up to a stranger
And have a conversation
It’s no longer any danger
I’ve grown out of my frustration.
So when they say, “You’re not the same”
I’ll tell them they’re correct
And when they say, “You’ve really changed”
I’ll tell them it’s for the best.
