Death Before Adaptation

You either outgrow it or it wears you out

And I've grown weary with apprehension

The non-adjuster; Death before adaptation

Can't change and seems I never will

I'm a skilled warrior, but I fight a battle uphill

And it's a war that I will never win

Internal change is a thing I can never spin


Now grasping another rung on the ladder

Leading to the pinnacle of my fight

Another milestone crossed, but I'm sadder

Along this journey that's only measured in loss

The spokesperson for uninnovation

The changeable remains unaltered

The non-adjuster; Death before adaptation

Stuck in a constant state of wondering

When this will all be over
