Change


He grows up to be passive and yet very sensual
That boy who had no friends
That boy who was as still as nature in its calm …
He grows up to be intelligent and powerful
That boy who was the last rung of the ladder
That boy who lost every fight
HE HAD CHANGED
The change in him was inevitable, there was no escape
He was a child incomplete and immature
Then change came and moulded a new being
HE IS A NEW MAN
Now he’s a man and needs to change
What will he be?
He’s changed yet incomplete

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
