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.

    Remembering The Old Days

    Take me back to far off lands

  3. 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.

    Changing From One Mood To Another

    The clouds never break
    Like blue waters do
    On this Island of Pain.
    How can I stand true?

    Poem About Overcoming Addiction

    Picture

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

    The young blood flowing beyond the sea

    I bore my sorrow heavily.

  10. Rainy Days When I Was Young

    Growing Up And Learning About Life

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