Winds of Change

Who do you see when you look at me?
I mean when you actually gaze.
I know who it is that I want to be
but clear focus not often stays.

Immensely and suddenly my life has changed
in my heart I just want to belong
to be accepted and loved regardless of 
whether or not I am deemed to be strong.

At times I believe I'm a fraud or a fake
because I get so sorely confused
and when people see that I'm not always firm
they think I deserve to be used.

Its not the truth, and no one deserves
to be victimized, hurt, or enslaved
and the more I work to live and to 'be'
I take one step out of the grave.

Whoever you think it is that you see
will sometimes and often change
but that is the slow process of growing up
to be tossed, turned and rearranged.

The only true constant thing in life
is change and the the result that it brings
but if not for the constant ebb and flow
only the slow and old songs we would sing.

If all people in the world remained the same
revolution and industry we'd lack
and the progress made in the last few years
would put human rights way back.

So when you look at me and think that I've changed
you are absolutely right
Just like the rest of the developing world
I'm flexible and abounding in might.

I may get frustrated and want it to stop
and for the winds of change to slow
but honestly if they did as I asked
I would not dawn this healthy glow.

Each day I chose change over staying in place
because I know a great life abounds
when we can let go of the past and keep trucking on
and listen to the winds gentle sounds.

Words Can Kill

I don't believe that everything happens for a reason, but I do believe that for everything that happens there is a use and a purpose for the event.  Sometimes people come into our lives to stay for a reason, for a season, or a lifetime.  I would like to think that everyone comes into my life for a lifetime, but really if that happened to any of us, we would have toooo many people in our lives and we would never grow.
