Somethings Will Never Change - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

While the earth circulates in circles
Time cannot be frozen in a sudden miracle
And whilst the sun still rises and sets
Only a female has the ability to give birth
Solely the sensible
Know that death is inevitable

You know! I know! We know!
Some things will never change
Like growing older with age
A fire always burns with some rage
Some people are born to hate
Some people are late by trait

And the things we all care about
I number in three
'Money, love and life, ' I shout
These things are not for free

They come with a price
Sometimes a bitter sacrifice
We will always wander the earth
Stumbling upon birth and death
And what is even strange
Is with air we must exchange to stay alive
And we must continuously eat to survive

You know! I know! We know!
Events may be arranged or rearranged
And change is always bound to change
But some things will never change!

Like every beginning has an end
And let us not ignorantly pretend
Everyone has at least an enemy or friend
