(Noun), “Change is a-coming!”
(Verb), “Change the subject, please.”
Simultaneously effortless and impossible.
The path to transformation is littered with debris,
including a million lists of tasks to be done,
a few epics containing dreams to be realized,
and a lengthy playbill of the people I’ve disappointed.
A lonely trail,
one in which I seek only my own company
because I am too afraid
to see myself in the eyes of my loved ones.
An unlit road,
where I go through the motions of the day
as if under a cloud,
and I feel I really should have just spent the day in bed.
It comes like a hot flame,
shining a light on the scars within,
guiding me towards the Only One who will hold my hand,
burning to bits the debris of a former life.
Making it so
I can breathe
Change is not easy,
and if I achieve it,
I’ve waged a most meaningful battle.
I can’t change the world, but I can change myself.
