When My Eyes Grow Old

When my eyes grow old I hope they don't see the same world.
I hope I only have memories of how this world is today.
And I hope to change my life before it's too late.
I know I'm young now, but I won't be forever, and time is everything.
Maybe I'll care less what people think of me.
I wish to have more knowledge then I have ever had before.
Being upset for not being able to love myself and be happy.
Not trying so hard to please everyone.
I'll wish I would have followed my heart instead of my mind and gone with my passion.
I'll regret the time I passed up traveling.
Not just leaving a bad situation.
Maybe the words I was too scared to say before may just slip out of my mouth.
I'll be disappointed in myself for not taking care of myself like I should've.
I wish I would've taken the time to appreciate things more, even the little things.
Maybe I should've spent more time with my family.
Less time pushing people away.
More time letting people in.
Failing to finish what I started.
Not letting that sadness just roll out of my eyes.
And regretting not reading that book again.
Before my eyes grow old I need to change the stars.
