New lamps for old standards

They’re saying that change will be good for you,
but if you’re the same as me you don’t like
anything new,

and in preferring the old ways
stuck to the old days
change won’t be happening any time soon.

Then
when you look again
and a bit deeper than before,
you find that you have changed
but you have to hide it
because the friends you had
will give you shit about it.

It’s different being me being diifferent,
but not a bad as I thought it would be.
