A Poem by Seamstress

This machine doesn’t work anymore

The engine remains empty

Yet the gas tank keeps begging for more

The mechanic knows his job well

Yet the machine keeps resisting the improvements

The engine is begging for more

Yet the gas tank is doing the receiving.

The engine head leaks nightly til there is no more fluid within

Warning bells ring over and over to show something wrong

The mechanic keeps working patiently

Yet the machine still resists the changes

Before the machine completely falls apart

For the mechanic to really get through

The machine has got to accept the changes

No matter how very hard they are.

Yes I agree we are afraid for changes but changes are good, not always, changes can make you stronger. We have not to be afraid for changes, nice poem!

It's hard to be in love with a machine, isn't it?

It isn't that I'm in love with the machine its that I am the machine and have been feeling broken.
