Like The Seasons
Like the seasons we will change.
There can be no doubting this.
And although we attempt to fight
We fail to ignore the shift.
From the day we are born
We are destined to develop.
In the shadows of our parents
In this 'love' we are enveloped.
And as the spring ends,
Our summer comes along.
Where all of our problems begin
And we become mentally strong.
The days begin to cool
As we move into fall.
Our adulthood begins
And we answer life's many calls.
And then we shift to the winter
The cold, endless nights.
Where we end our chapter,
And pave the way for a new life.
