If the world turned upside down,

Would you notice?

 

If the Earth spun twice as fast,

Would you feel it?

 

If all of the stars in the night sky ceased to shine,

Would you see it?

 

Would you believe it?

 

Or turn away,

seeking shelter in the lie that nothing ever changes.

 

Everything we do is an attempt to keep things the way they are.

 

We block out everything new, because we are afraid.

 

We believe we don't need to let go,

When the opposite is true.

 

But in the end,

if you take a different path,

You'll always find your way.

 

Things change,

And it's scary,

But sometimes,

We need to let go of things.

 

Those waves of change,

Can help you.

 

You need to let go,

So you can breathe in the sun,

And finally grow,

Into the person you were made to be.

 

Because you know you'll make it out alive,

And find hope, family, and love,

Waiting on the other side,

for you.
