Life Is About Change - Poem by Arti Chopra

The handsome and strong physiques are old now,
the eyes that shone with life, are watery and cold now,
the house we grew up lovingly in, is sold now,
everything changes, is CHANGE

the hands that led our steps, have to be led now,
the hands that lovingly fed us, have to be fed now,
the eyes that helped us to read, cannot read now,
we who depended on them, depend on us now,
such is life...and life is CHANGE

the mind which was once fertile, cannot remember,
the heart which was once fiery, is now a dying ember,
the zest for life has now, blossomed into an inner peace,
the mind has now accepted, that life will cease,
such is life...and life is CHANGE

we who ran to our children, they rush to us now,
children who fussed so much, its we, who fuss now,
time that was never enough, weighs heavily on our hands,
its time to do something worthwile, leave our footprints in the sands
such is life.... and life is CHANGE

mighty rivers dry up, leaves wither and fall,
animals that were tiny at birth, grow up proud and tall,
wounds fester, memories fade, and the mind gradually heals,
man gathers wisdom, man realizes, and man feels,
this is life.....and life is CHANGE

we came from life, and we will go to dust,
in this long transition, grow spiritually we must,
our purpose in life is just one,
grow spiritually, evolve and be one with the ONE,

thats what life is about..its about CHANGE
