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 to. 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 for personal growth and change in self that the change presents.

    I remember the day we met.
    Too young to see the danger.

    That you'd fill me with so much anger.

    Accepting Who You Are

    Before I became strong, I knew what it was like
