Change Poems

Poetry about Change

All of us experience change in our lives. Change is the one constant in our lives. There are changes that we look forward to and change that we fear. However, one thing is for sure. Things will not stay the same no matter how much we would like them too. When a life change occurs, we have two choices in how to respond. We can despair that a change has come and assume that things will be worse, or we can look with excitement at the new possibilities that the change presents.

    I remember the day we met
    Too young to see the danger
    I didn't know the devil you were
    That you'd fill me with so much anger

  4. My Life With Heroin

    Poem About Putting The Pieces Back Together

    Thinking back on my life, when I was a little child;
    So outrageous and bubbly doing things that were wild.
    Thinking back on my life, all those wonderful years;
    Not a care in the world, no worries, no fears.
