Challenging Change - Poem by Not Long Left

Challenge change and you will lose
fed up, distanced, tied down with the blues.

They say embrace the unkown, ease into
its arms and it shall carefully carry you

forwards. Stripped of house, child, partner
and role I chose to challenge. The harder

I fell the more determined I surely became
If change was the umbrella I was the rain.

A hermit with a desire for company was I
And now, well now I realise It wasn't a lie.

Refusal to accept the inevitable weakens
all that try. I have given up shunning the seasons.

    Somethings just come to be, we seem to have no warning, and even if we did, would the story
    still unfold,
    We should try our best not to judge anothers actions, this I find very hard to do, but am working on it
    For who knows how they would react in the same situation, we would have to be them to truly understand
    Instead we judge others on our expectations of how we think they should act, and this in turn leads us to a truer reflection of our-selves
    Love duncan X
