I once heard someone say,

If you don’t change you don’t grow,

But I waved that thought away,

For who were they to think they know,

I’d always stayed the same,

A heart that thrived within the cold,

And I had no desire to change,

At least that’s what I had been told,

But deep within my mind a thought grew slowly, bit by bit,

Until I felt trapped in my skin,

For it no longer fit,

There’s a whole world sitting out there,

Changing every single day,

That proves it’s nothing to be scared of,

If you do it the right way,

For a day afraid to turn into night,

Will miss the silver moon,

And flower that refuses to change,

Will never get to bloom,

Change is all you need,

I had thought I was a thorn bush,

Only good for snagging clothes,

But if you don’t dare to change the right way,

You will never find out you are a rose.
