Winds of Change - A poem

 

Cocooned in the breast of love

In my soul I felt free

The heart of strength weak no more

I nestled in quite happily

 

After time the winds of change

Lured me with its caress

It promised me a better life

Of security and success

 

Seduced by the winds of change

I eagerly left my nest

I slaved I worked I soldiered on

Trying to become the best

 

When security and success did come

A voice inside did speak

Why does your soul cry out?

Is it becoming weak?

 

I longed for the cocoon of love

The winds of change cared not

The way I lost, but now I found

for my soul had not forgot

This is true for so many people who are so busy looking for something else, something bigger or better that they fail to see what is right in front of them to begin with and then end up losing themselves along the way. Loved it!
