Change

Change was specially written for National Poetry Day 2018 

 

Change is always happening

It’s a fact my friend, it’s like fads and trends

It’s like I used to write poems with pads and pens

Now I type ‘em in my phone

I’ve got stacks of them

Them being notebooks I once wrote in

My head in the clouds daydreaming and floating

Even when sitting still, we’re in motion

As the Earth rotates, change isn’t slowing

Growth brings change and as we are growing

Life makes me wonder with eyes wide open

The seasons run their annual relay

Spring passes the baton to summer

Whose quick pace and speed runs its lap,

hands over to Autumn

Autumn is cool but not cooler than Winter

I’m talking about change

Even when things seem the same

It has a mysterious way about it that seems strange

Like it seems to happen suddenly

It’s hard to explain

Even change changes

I mean, that’s its name

Change is always happening

It’s a fact my friend, it’s like fads and trends

It’s like I used to write poems with pads and pens

Now I type ‘em in my phone

And I’m rapping them

 

Change.
