Change Your Mind



~~~

Cling not to the past

The ancient and rusted

The long-held full known

Is not the most trusted

~~~

World changes each day

And what we always knew

Becomes old thinking

In days that are too few

~~~

We can see the new

Only with open eyes

And with youthful hopes

We can visualize

~~~

That change always is

Likely will always be

But not if we don’t

Change what we may believe

~~~

    I only hope that I am around in twenty-five years to appreciate and enjoy life’s changes.

  6. This piece connects with me deeply. I have always been emotional, attached to an idea, Change is not what I easily accept, but the order of our existence and evolution is all about change. I have got to learn that and ever since have tried to be compliant to the order of nature. It’s wonderful poetry, wise and precise 🙏
