"Be the Change you wish to see in the world" -Gandhi "I will be a Hummingbird, I will do the best that I can." -Wangari Maathai "Where stereotypes begin with a grain of truth, cliches begin with a boulder" - George Watsky "And she's gonna learn, that this life will hit you - hard - in the face - wait for you to get back up just so it can kick you in the stomach, but getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs, how much they like the taste of air." - Sarah Kay "Do not fear what has blown up. If you must, fear the unexploded." -Suheir Hammad

Dead, like the tree in my front yard.

So definitely the title of this was for my friend Chris (sorry it's not an emo poem), but today I realized something. They're comes a moment of realization where the person you though you knew from when you were a kid has changed. They once loved talking to you. They once loved being next to you. They cared for you. They loved the simple things that involved you.
But now you are growing more mature, and this person is growing as well. And differences in opinions clash. The bonds begin to tear and awkward silences begin to seep in.
The realization is a painful moment. One where you realize that someone you deeply care for, and yourself, have grown apart and it's too late to change it. You've made new friends, and they've made new friends. It's as if the relationship died. And whoever it was that was once always there for you, has now been replaced by a zombie of the total opposite.
It's a sad day no doubt. But, one thing you must remember, is the memories.
