Something To Tell! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar
Each wrinkles on the tree wanted to tell us something
The leaves, flowers and fruits are like the guests.
They may come and leave anytime.
Trees keep on standing witnessing everything,
Down from the heat of summer to the chills of winter.
But it went on adding its pages with memories written down in lines.
One can bend the tender stem
It can be moulded in a way one want.
If one bend the stem of older tree
Its sure going to break.
Change is difficult to accept.
Especially whose foundation had been set years back.
That too it was set with a strong foundation
Whether good or bad doesn't matter.
Many experiences also went on adding to its foundation
Which kept on making it stronger and stronger
On each Passing days.
Any slight change is enough to break it down.
Changes to certain extent in life is possible
Though the change can be seen from outside.
But the actual base remains the same.
To be on positive side
One has to accept change,
it's really very difficult to change the thoughts
Which has become our prolonged habits.
May be ones circumstances are responsible while forming any thoughts as a base.
