What does change mean for us A Poem

Updated on April 16, 2012

Change takes us from our comfort zone.

Is change good?

Would we change if we could?

Change has an adjustment period in our life.

It could be for better or worse outcome.

Change is different.

It can be measured by who it affects.

It could upset or help.

Change can be a lifestyle or a heart change.

Sometimes we have to just let things go.

We are to learn from change.

Are it is a waste anyway.

Change is for the victors not victims.

Life is full of changes.

It can make you a better person.

Change takes place in each and every one of us.

It is here always, so change.

Be a better person today.

    Change comes in all different ways. I can recall times when things changed at work, or I had to make a change from where I lived. Sometimes it can be unsettling, as we do have our comfort zones. I know I sure have them! Hopefully things will change soon for the better...I've had my share of the worst for now. Great hub! : ) Voted up and useful!

    Change, I think, is the nature of life. If we are not changing (some might call it growing) than we are stagnant which will lead to negative change.

    I agree with Darlene that change is certain. Put it in the same category with death and taxes. Hope I can greet them all with grace.

    Change is hard for those that take security in day to day routines...I, for one, have a dickens of a time adjusting to change even when I know the change is for the better. Great job Rhonda.

    Your poem I rated up across the board.Really true and sweet and you couldn't be more right.The thought of reading about change in your hub scared the life out of me.I am here accepting change.My biggest resistance to change is that when my life is going great and I enjoy it so much.I know in time things will change and my life will take turns for the worst.Even though I am always looking for changes for the better.So I want to enjoy what I have now and if change never comes I will never face more sadness and loss.Thank you so much for touching my heart.

    HI DREAM ON Thanks for your comment. Change scares us all. I have never really liked change either until I learned to embrace it instead of fighting with it. Change will come if we accept it or not. That is life, it sounds terrible but there is nothing that we can do about it. I have learned if we just relax and don't dread the worst, we may encounter the best.The best that change has to offer. Thanks for reading my poem I am glad it touched you. Your comments are always appreciated.

    Have a great day.

    Thanks ahorseback fro your endearing comment. I know exactly what you mean about change. Nobody likes it or wants it to come. Instead it still comes. I learned how to embrace change. This in turn makes it easier to accept. Thanks sos much for dropping by today.

    Take care and have a great day.

    The only constant in life is change. One thing about change is that it is stressful, whether it is a change for bad or for the good. I like change. My life would be boring without it. Thanks for an excellent poem. I enjoyed it.

    Change as you say can be enlightening, exhausting, endearing or frustrating. It is one thing that is always going to happen for the better or for the worst. Your lovely philosophical piece captures this well. I love change... as I grow restless!

    nice write Rhonda, change will not wait for us to come along, It is a ride with or without us. With us, we, we are spared surprise. Without us, we awaken one day and wonder where we are. Well done. Be well

    Rhonda, I heard somewhere that the only thing constant about life is change. It comes no matter if it's invited or not. Sometime it's good, sometime's it not so good. It is what it is. Great poem. I am sure it helped your friend.
