Change


When going through the change of life
Who knew that it could cause such strife?

Emotions running up and down
At first a smile, and then a frown

I feel so happy.......then I'm sad
Soon followed by, I'm raging mad!

And then the anger turns to tears
Oh please, let me turn back the years!

Such little things can make me cry
And half the time I don't know why

I toss and turn, can't sleep at night
And with the covers, have a fight

I throw them off, I'm hot, I sweat!
I pull them up, I'm cold, I'm wet!

And this continues on and on
It doesn't stop, till mourning dawns

    One who is a poet at heart never feels at peace.
    Otherwise where would the poetry to come from.
    These feelings are the harbinger for something greater to come
    Keep close to it.

    Lovely, lovely.writing
