Times Of Transition - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

times of transition
are painful difficult
saying too much

saying not enough
saying the wrong thing
or even the right thing

at the wrong time
even without trying
we are changing


as life
circumstances
change us


an attempt
to become
our greatest

potential
is a course
we must chart

ever
attempt
to follow


Inspired by the poem ‘I’ll Change for You’ by dave alan walker.

    Everything around us are changing.Life, ideas, morals, ethics, values and even the society is changing. Transition period is of course painful but it leads to new hope and ideals. Emotional turbulence one has to undergo. Friend, you have realistically painted. Emotions and fluency of language and thought in the poem is superb! Friend, thanks for sharing such a wonderful, scientific thought. marks 10+ (Report)Reply
