"Some things will never change"---Tupac

She stood by her beliefs
Never giving up on them
Proving herself high in self-esteem

Until another planet moved into her
Taking her guard down
Rendering her beliefs

I solely believe she is falling apart
Although she appears strong, "hard"
It's all a front, her world is

Who am I to judge what's going
On in her life?
Who am I to speak? Or contradict The truth of a lie?

I just look in her eyes.
That's where all the hurt is reflected
Not even a mirror could reflect the truth
To the point where she understands

We all knew who she was
And what she stood for
It took one word for change
She is the renegade

I love this piece. It reminds me of a friend that I have. There are people that turn over time, people that change into something else. Often times you just watch and know that there is nothing you can do.
