I found Alex R's poem, "Change", incredibly inspiring. The message that was illuminated to me is that change in itself is inevitable; no matter what efforts you make to prevent it, if it is supposed to happen it will. Some would call this destiny, but no matter how you view it, change affects us most in the sense of how we choose to respond to it. You can choose anger, fear, or rejection. You can choose to dewll in its folly or you can grow from it.
