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 bore my sorrow heavily.

    Growing Up And Learning About Life

    When I was young on rainy days,
    Alone on my front porch I'd play.

    That I could create with my toys and my mind.
