in life

one is always


our bodies and minds

turn from new to old

and with age

needful to needed
(only to become needful once more)

we mold to fit in

adapt to survive

evolve to exist

and lately i’ve begun wondering

who i really am

i’ve marched through life

without watching myself

and i’ve begun

(as a reaction to a challenge)

to change

from costume to costume

and lie to lie

but never myself
