Change...If I held out my hand,Change...12 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Would you take it?
Could I take you away,
To places I've never seen?
Familiar as they've been,
Now different with you…
You are change,
Like a wind brings a turning of the seasons,
Like an ocean wave tosses the shore,
Like creation, like the end of it all.
Knowing you is
Like standing in that wind, feeling the world change all around me,
Like standing against that wave, knowing that I won't need to breathe
Like being made again, and being destroyed forever,
Like falling and never reaching the bottom.
And I can't help, but feel the least bit afraid,
Because who can't help,
But feel afraid of change?
But I need a change,
I need to change,
I need change.
I just need you.
