Most of the time we write when we are uncomfortable
or we do it to speak for those that can’t speak for themselves
about things that promised to stay the same, and didn’t
so instead we have to change
which is just like being nervous when a conversation starts
although a lot of time has passed
since way back when all I knew was words that rhymed
and poetry in three lines
we realize that change is overdue
and things do, it’s weird
sometimes we welcome it with open arms, or wish
we hadn’t thought ahead so far
and it’s not everyday but I still sit and watch the skyline fade
from color to stars
sanctuary is always the other-side of the horizon so here we are
Standing at the top of a city
I think evolution never reached us
because we are nowhere near as free as birds
who look down from above and fly around for harmless fun
and yet we have a point to make, rewrite fate
if you believe in that
we might sound shy when we call for change but
through nervous laughs, stutters and croaks
you can just about hear vocals and notes
and dream overnight dreams that materialize wings
and save us

One thought on “Change

    Twould be the astrologers so interested in fate
    Twas the stars that placed the bars before our sixteen hearts
    Twid we ever wish to see the morning
    Twill we ever wonder when to stop mourning
    Til the daylight fixes itself after break
    Twould you ever understand the mistakes you make
    Tlil the mourning dove comes and writes it’s song
    Tlid the world take time to right it’s wrongs
    Two whose days we wonder for the calendar’s sake
    Twould the world oh wish it’s heart would break

    John Milton’s Poem for William Shakespeare

    William Shakespeare’s Response

    Oh Milton you the callous One
    On heart and soul we rapture son
    The world is winning against it’s fate
    The world it knows for women’s sake
    The female form it stares at men
    Wondering oh when it shall find it’s den
    The beast is coming for each and all
    It makes sense it does why all men fall
