Unchangeable - Poem by Maya Hanson

At sunrise I watched you leaning
against the west side of the hill
Just as lost as I am

We're unchangeable,
scared half to death
by things we can't understand

And my feet still pound
against black and white pavements
that bury the yesterdays we left behind

But at sunrise I saw you
staring at the moon
hoping this world stays unchangeable

It was so long ago,
it's tomorrow and forever
and the echoes in between

We're unchangeable,
running backwards
smoky ashes rekindled again and again

I won't ever burn for you
like the waves on the shore
but I'll watch that sunrise too

I'm the one you
won't ever love
and can't ever lose
