Facing Change

Odd are the ways of the

Human mind

And even more eccentric the

Temperament of mankind

We choose to stay safe in a mental sanctuary

And refuse to set ourselves free

Clinging to familiar ways

Chained to gone by days

We fear the winds of revolution

And shirk all that spells evolution

Maintaining status quo

Seems easier than going with the flow

We’d rather choose to be the torpid river

Over becoming the gushing stream

We seldom stray from the safe path

To chase and live a dream

When the caresses of time start to tell

We learn to step out of the shell

And then we start to know

To learn to love, live and grow

Is to open your arms to change

And let go of our inhibitions

Of all that is novel and strange
