Sunday Scribblings #136 - Change

Sunday Scribblings #136 - Change
Apologies for the delay everyone! It was an easy prompt this week - you can either go your own way, or take the obvious route - it's "change." Make sure it's a new post inspired by the prompt. No fair using an old post!


The Change


When will we see
That the life that must be
Is not in the possessions we seek

Changes come and changes go
And the world keeps going 'round

As I grow old and wiser with age
The changes are ever so gradual
Than the life I once lead trying to live on the edge
Striving to keep up with the Joneses

Changes come and changes go
And the world keeps going 'round

With the economy flat
And a new head of state
Will our lot be coming out better

Or will things degrade
In the name of the change
And life be far worse than we were

Changes come and changes go
And the world keeps going 'round

My philosophy has also been changed
As the optimism is rising
I think we are headed for many great changes
To help the plight of the many

Changes come and changes go
And the world keeps going 'round

Someone said it before: "Life doesn't consist of the things that a man possesses." You said it well too.

The picture at the beginning of this poem is awesome. It works well with the poetry. Also, I like the repeated refrain--it reinforces your idea of how change is inevitable, but people always roll with it.

this makes me think of the old adage that says something similar to,, the only constant is change... i am just glad i am at the stage of life i am at when all of this came about...
