The constant change.

The constant change.

A Poem by Suditi

They say life is not always fair,
They say it's a cruel world out there,
Everything has transformed,
Nothing has remained,
It's the law of nature-the constant change.

The castle will dust down,
The flowers will die,
The clouds will pour down,
Vacating the sky.

The moon will dance around, 
The sea will roar,
The birds won't fly forever,
They'll have to touch the floor.

The king won't rule to eternity,
He'll lose throne to more powerful some day.
The rat will not always be lured by cheese,
To escape, he'll find his way.

The sheep won't follow always,
One or two will surely leave the flock.
Diamond will be extracted from the very same place,
Which was once, just-a-rock.

The good will be mean at times,
The evil will be kind.
Silence which was bliss once,
Will one day, numb the mind.

Balance is never about keeping things
Like they have always been,
Neither about being unafraid,
of the things unknown, unseen.

It is about, taking the blow on your face,
And moving forward.
Because rest of the tale is waiting to unfold.
The story, waiting to be heard.

"The good will be mean at times,
The evil will be kind.
Silence which was bliss once,
Will one day, numb the mind."

I love this whole poem - it's amazing - but this stanza really stands out to me. I love it! I love how you portray shades of grey; not everything's black and white. I can't really explain why, but it seems to speak of something I understand. I understand that, while I'm usually nice, I can be unkind, and those who are evil can be kind. I understand that silence is both beautiful and suffocating.

The last two lines are pretty phenomonal too. I love the message of this poem - it's like a little pick-me-up. Everything changes and dies, but if we want to make the most of our time, we have to adapt with it. We have to surf the tide instead of drown.

Fantastic write.
Keep up the hard work!

great words i read once that the only thing constant in life is the change it self, and you made it into a great poem and i adore every word
The sheep won't follow always,
One or two will surely leave the flock.
Diamond will be extracted from the very same place,
Which was once, just-a-rock.
i salute you

Wow Suditi ! the grey shade of life awesomely portrayed! I totally loved it !
Very true lines !!

//Balance is never about keeping things

And moving forward
Because rest of the tale is waiting to unfold.
The story, waiting to be heard.

There's nothing constant in this world except change. The very title delivers it all n the verses simply play along the same music more forcefully. Magnificent.

Wow, Suditi this is a rather unique piece of art. I love how you describe that this world goes through constant change, which is frankly true! We all know that just don't want to accept the fact. You're absolutely right that everything's transformed and how nothing remains. This world goes through so much change everyday.
This is an amazing piece. It's by far my favorite of your work :) You're an excellent writer. Keep it up! :)

I really like your imagery! Yea, it's kinda dark, happy, black, white, you know what i mean. I just had a little problem with following it, but i still like your flow of thoughts, and it's very emotional and powerful. I can totally relate to this and the message is clear! 100 for this!
Thanks for sharing the awesome write.. Well done :D

Wow, you're such an amazing poet! I definitely loved the message in this one. I agree that nothing's constant in this world -- except change itself. It was nice reading through this piece; it had its own rhythm, if that makes any sense. Everything seemed to fit perfectly!

Great job. Keep writing! :)

Powerful words. Very timely for me. I was just grappling with that very subject in my spiritual practice. Indeed all things must pass. Well said. Thanks for the request.

I believe we create our destiny. Can look for the bad in the day or seek laughter and happiness. I like your thoughts and the positive ending. Thank you for the outstanding poem.
