I don't have many favourite quotes , though I do love the truth that 'change is constant .'
For you , a thousand times over - Hassan , The Kite Runner
If you want to leave footprints in the sands of time , don't drag your feet - Rudyard Kipling


I am the child of change, adopted by many.
From the intense fusion of hope and desire, I was born.

The many who fostered me, became me
Moulded by the hands of happiness and memories in the sun,
Shaped by the sharp blades of misery,
This is what I have become.

Yet, I say to you, I am missing a limb
With every passing moment in time, I am born anew.
With something missing, agreed
But not without a memory in the vault of thought.

The mother of change has brought unto me
A sense of reality, almost extinct in this make-shift world,
Where no one lasts, except my mother.


The author's comments:
I wrote this piece in the dead of night. Most adults who I asked said they liked it yet, felt it was a little heavy for a girl my age. I was just putting my point across.
Change is the only constant in this world, and that's what I was trying to put across. You may want to forget those you have hurt you, but they've changed you nonetheless. They've made you who you are.

You know, actually... I think they DO have some clue of what they're doing to us, but they continue to do it.

Some do it knowingly, some sub-conciously :/

And thank you ( :

Ths poem is so beautiful and strong. I love the graceful honesty that you put into each line. A few of my favorites: "But not without a memory in the vault of thought" and the first two "I am the child of change, adopted by many/ From the intense fusion of hope and desire, I was born" - those just paint a picture in my mind :) Loved it. Keep writing!

"Everything will be ok in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end."

yeah I noticed it cut me off :P But you did get my whole review except for the last two letters of poem. :D

Your welcome and don't worry about some people not excepting it. Some people won't, but that doesn't mean your poetry is bad. Its just their opinion ;P
