people change for themselves

People can change
But they change for themselves
And they often don't try to change
It is a natural, unexpected evolution

There comes a point when
The promise of future change is a lie
Where the pattern of actual behavior
Is clear and inescapable

At some point it's time 
to stop believing words repeated
To recognize actions as answers
To think about your power to choose

If you pin your future on another
You are at the behest if their behavior
If you choose your power of choice
You may not wait for change in another.
