MY OWN CHANGE

Post by Abigail09 » 09 Nov 2018, 00:24

Change as we have been made to believe is normal
It is SOMETIMES inevitable...
Little did I know that I would react to change like this...
I have been in a situation for so long,
Now change feels like a disease,
It feels,looks ,sounds strange,
That is Adaptability,
I forgot it was wrong
I forgot it was not right for me
I came up with a reason good enough for me,
Why it is meant to be like this,
But then change happens.
Its difficult to go out of the box I have been for so long.
It feels like I am about to loose something.
NO am not
I am gaining something better
I have to convince myself that as they say ''CHANGE HAPPENS''
It still feels strange ...it still does....but i am going to change
Then i will question myself on why i stayed like that for so long
Why I adapted to the way things were and not embrace the change quickly.
I am still going to continue to change....

Sounds like one of the most dinstinct patternes of the human experience is the consistent, inexcusable, gantlet of change. Not always welcome but always different. Thank you for the poetic context in which you expressed your experience.

Your poem literally put into words the struggle that I and many others face when we are dealt with change. Really, truly a beautiful piece!
