I changed

I changed
the day I realized

– people ensnared in a web
are not struggling to come out
but rule from within

– people caught in whirlpools
are not struggling to come out
but pull others in

– power intoxicates
suspends fair judgement
but creates hollows within

– people who bat for you
first dissolve your strength, so that
lack of support makes you cringe

– people who support
resent your independence
induce guilt in your skin

I changed
the day I realized
change is fluid
only transformations are real
and it needs revolutions
