Change

Standard

They say never cease to be who you are

But also inflict upon you scars.

They say always stay the way you are

But also lament on the way you implore.

 

It is all but an empty phrase

To be able to accept someone as he is

As somewhere down the road

You tend to be as much as an accomplice

In the deplorable turn of events

Turning the cheerful into one who isn’t it enough anymore

Turning the talker into one who isn’t it enough anymore

Turning the caring into one who isn’t it enough anymore

Turning the sensitive into one who isn’t it enough anymore

 

You just say you’d never want them to change

But the truth lies in your attempts to do the exchange.

You know what the outcome will be?

The cheerful will be so

But won’t show you so

The talker will be so

But won’t show you so

The caring would be so

But won’t show you so

The sensitive would be so

But won’t show you so.

 

So, you be happy with the suppressing

And they’ll be happy with the non expressing

It’ll be your loss with not receiving what they’d want to be expressing

But at least both would be happy

If not from with-in

But at least from with-out

For with-out being the popular shout-out.
