Over time some things may change,

Whilst all the others remain the same.

A mountain standing as steady as can be,

Only seems unmoving to you and me.

Things not at first readily seen, 

You may upon closer inspection glean.

The words will sometimes lie,

But on numbers you can always count by.

If this may tend toward the awkward at times,

It's not due to difficulty trying to rhyme.

As usual, don't go about this the usual way,

B/c by not the usual rules can I play.

Albeit this creation was indeed very tedious to make,

May solving it by comparison only be a piece of cake,

 

What am I?

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P

Nope, as usual with 'Y-san style' riddles, guessing at the answer won't help ;).

Nice of you to bring up structure...the general structure of the poem, combined with my previous hint, might afford some clues.
