Change – Author Amanda Hoppes


Like a mad scientist, you experimented with my emotions

To see how far you could push and pull me

You trampled over my sincere devotions

Somehow, I was blind to your brutality


I pretended it was okay; I let it be

And continued to build a life with you

I became numb to the nonsense and cruelty

I imagined that it was normal to go through


Once I became strong and stood up to

your degrading games

You cried like a small child and begged me to stay

I could not comfort you; I no longer felt the same

I walked right on by, ready for the change.

About the Author

Writing has been my passion since the age of 7… my inspiration to keep going with my writing has always come from my mother. Even though she passed away when I was 18, it is now driven by her memory.

 My name is Amanda Hoppes born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa. My writing is my every step, every move, every breath I take; It’s my vibrant smile, my saddest frown, my every single mistake; It’s my heart on fire, my soul so deep, my mind always free; It’s my life line, my past, present and future, my writing is ME.
