What Beats In My Mind (poem)

What beats inside the forest of my mind

A drop of something that won’t let me go

A shadow hid in world I’ve come to know

This breath forgotten which was left behind


I feel its whisper deep inside my flow

So deep within the mask I have refined

This hint beyond the life I have designed

What is the song which yearns its morning so


Have I not lived each moment as I should

And made the most of person I became


My changes were not often understood

I drifted off and ego was to blame


And now my mind surrounded by dark wood

Must wonder of a song which once was me

Sometimes we don't even realize how we change through the years. Some good and others not so good. When we see it, we need to change it or be forever lost.

Change is the only constant in this world. It is interesting how an old friend we haven't seen in years, for example, can remind us we are no longer the person we used to be. It is often so imperceptible to the person changing.

Deep thoughts as to how we change as life goes on, and then we realize we may be someone totally different from whom we were before and may be surprised when we realize such about ourselves.

But the song lingers on. A lovely poem about adapting to change all through our lives.

At times, it seems unfair.

I remember wondering why my Mother would have such melancholy.

Only time can teach some lessons of life.

Beautiful work here, Martin.

If I had to change anything in my life, I don't think I would. I am a strong person for those very reasons.
