People Change – An Experiment

People change.
They leave and they come and they go.

People change.
They aren’t the same as they were yesterday.

People change.
They have good days. They experience kindness, and know small steps lead to amazing things. The world is beautiful.

People change.
They have bad days. They get hurt and turn inward. They believe stories that speak to their fears. The world is full of darkness.

People change.
They use perceived slights to feed the hatred growing inside. They build walls. They think something is being taken from them by people who don’t look the way they do. They refuse to see what they have taken away from others.

People change.
They see sadness in someone else’s eyes, and it stays with them. They see injustice, and they know it’s not how things should be.

People change.
They know the road is long, that sometimes you rest, but you don’t have to quit. They choose not to be afraid.

People change.
They aren’t the same as they were yesterday.

People change.
They leave and they come and they go.
