Are you the rocks or the river? by Zoe Wright

I am neither the rocks nor
the river.
I do not
go with the flow of what
others are doing just so that
I don’t get left behind.
But
I do not
deny change.
I am not easily
swayed by society
while still
changing myself.
I will not
leave a friend behind
just because that’s what the
crowd is doing
but I will urge them
to see
a silver lining.
I stand by what
I think is right
because
if we don’t stand for something
we may fall for anything.
I will change for the good
for the better
and sometimes for the worse
if I must.
But in reality,
I am neither the rocks nor the river.
