Change is Permanent


Change is permanence
That is continuous in this World
Friend to enemy
Love to hate
Happiness to sorrow

A penny not to save but to spend;
A penny not to spend but to save;
Crinkling differences stays overboard
Multi-faced persons encountered
Second-by-second enacting different faces
Authority with the undeserving
Unworthy worthily recognized
Worthy thriving unrecognized
Need of the hour is to change
Enemy to friend
Love to hate
Sorrow to happiness

Passions changing overnight
Intimacy disappearing into authority
Forgotten words of love
Clashing egos by many
Will it remember love?
Need of the is to change
Dreams to actions
Thoughts into words
Memories as works

Rusty leaves fallen from trees
Can they be re-attached?
Charm-less childhood, when persisted
Each passing stages to relish
Every second of life punishing thoughts of death!
Gone a second can’t be re-lived
Broken thoughts n’ broken memories goes
With a broken heart
Need of the hour is to change

The exception for change being “SELF”
Soul stays but carcasses changes
Thought by thought carefully processed
Towards GOD – Permanence of change
Changes to permanence- For
He who is the CHANGE can’t be CHANGED

    that's what we say in the investment world too

    change is the only reallity for the world true

    that everything changes from man to stock price

    the fire one day changes into ice

    that's the way, way to go

    to know yourself, change u must know...

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
