Change

July 27, 2009
Change
a six letter word
which is both
dreaded
and longed for

When people promise
Big change
change for the poor
Change for the rich

a seed is planted
and hope begins to grow
Hope for tommorrow,
the offspring of yesterdays,

And we are willing to do,
whatever it takes
to make this world
a better place

never once,
have we looked at
the bigger picture
what is the cost?

are there better,
less
catastrophic and dramatic
ways?

I want to spend what i earn
working instead of playing
with my friends
and not
on a social securities fund
which I shall never see.

IS CHANGE REALLY THE BEST FOR YOU AND ME?

...surprised. The flickers of talent...the glimpse of a mind - fragile and incomplete - the hint of truth.
I am nearly...so closely...in the state of...admiration.
Yet, I could be a heartbreaker, hmm? Change...are you ready for it, love?
