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.

    Letting go doesn’t
    always look how you think it will.
    Sometimes it happens all at once.
    Sometimes it’s in phases.

  6. Time

    Time Goes Too Fast

    Time is endless but goes too fast.
    You long for the future, then yearn for the past.
    Summer's heat quickly turns to frost,
    A child grows, their innocence lost.

    Stars shine bright then fade away.
    Darkness melts and turns to light.
    The sunrise starts another day.
