We try to capture change by default
Bring it to heel, to a complete full stop

Inexorably it marches on and on, forwards
Happening, occurring, not going backwards

We see it as sudden wrinkles on our face
Carved by passing time in form of change

In consternation, we try to make it halt
Hastily slathering potions and what not

Change wondrous change happens all around
A bud suddenly blooms making us astound

Seasons happen, pass, always, every trimester
Bringing natural changes that do not fester

A newborn lying helplessly bawling
In no times turns over n starts crawling

Change touches and affects everything in life
Emotional ties over time either endure or wither

Beloved elders, the firm walls in our backgrounds
Suddenly crumble and breakdown, over time

Memories remain brightly  imprinted in our beings
Yet over time, these too become hazy and faded

Life is dynamic, flowing  river waters cannot be halted
Change is implacable, mandated, cannot be faulted



It seems to me self-evident that if you have a life, things happen in it,
and certain things do change; certain things end. People you know die.
Jonathan Franzen, American, Novelist Quotes
