Change never changes

Change remains change,
Change never changes,

Economy, who can predict?
High rates coming on with conflict,
One penny was enough for a loaf,
But today a million is nothing,
Why should every one complain,
Because change remains change it is changeless,

Glance at weather, yesterday a desert,
But now floods homes people desert,
Only if one can stand aloof,
Cast the eye beyond the horizon,
All is clear no clouds anywhere on this zone,
Then why should we complain,
Because change remains change it is changeless,

Doctrines, norms, beliefs and principles so dear,
All discarded none holds them anymore near,
When a woman beats a man we only laugh,

Religious quarters today remains a mess,
Church business today nicknamed God, s blessedness,
Didn't you go to God to harvest milk and honey,
Why today you go to harvest money?
All this meant to understand change,
How inevitable is change?
How unavoidable is change?
So must we accept change it never changes.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A dedication to all my friend on campus.

When I throw a glance at our society especially Africans there is a lot of transformation and this mostly is heading towards adoption of the western cultures, things that were considered taboos are no longer held in high esteem as it was before.This rang on my mind when i heard in news that of late it is women who are thoroughly inflicting discipline on irresponsible husbands with sticks (beating up) .

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
