A Time of Change

A time of change awaits you, friend. It crouches on your track. It peeps its head round yonder bend and knows you can’t go back. And being time, itself it bides, (albeit a time of change). You cannot know how well it hides and still be in your range! Your path might be a jolly jaunt when suddenly appears that deviation there to daunt you in the coming years. A monster ever stalking you. . . then one day it may pale, and thankfully you start anew upon another trail. Or maybe you’ve gone traipsing down a road of misery, and wishing only you could drown, you stand beside a sea. But look! What beckons you away? A time of change, (no beast) has handed you a bright new day and hopelessness has ceased! By Andrea Dietrich for Giorgio's Impress Me IV Contest
Motif: Philosophical

    Andria, I'm lookong for change so hard that this almost bring tears to my eyes. not to say the least that it was writen very very well. not one word out of place. all the rhyming was perfect. and this seems to be a Divine message to me personally. i know that it should have been up lifting and it is. but for me personally it means so much. so if your poetry has a purpose it was fulfilled in this. you earned no.1 for a reason. and one thing i can say about Georgio he has been well at choosing no1

    Wow, I love this poem. I love the way you weaved your thoughts on the page and how the poem developed to the very end. And what a lovely ending it was. Great write.

    Never give up, God is faithful. That's a passage in the bible. Your poen exemplifies that message. Keep the faith.

    Hope you don't mind me starting conversations on your poems or anything (let me know if that bugs you!). Concerning Jack Reacher, the move is great if you don't think about the books on which they are based off of. If you think of it as a Tom Cruise movie then I'm sure it's quite enjoyable. In the books Jack Reacher is described as being a hulking giant (Tom Cruise is quite short and not what I'd call a big dude).

    Every line of this poem is about my life now. Even to the last line and homelessness. But there is a glimmer of light. My God finally moving to my future. This piece is a my miracle.

    Well you've certainly surprised this reader. I loved the thoughtful and inviting feel of this poem. Change is the most natural thing in the world and it's always there to surprise you... around the corner. Fantastic piece!

    Nice wording and rhyming as usual.

    Change is not always a welcomed guest by some. I know a few that love to live in misery. It's a mind-set thing with them, a negativity. 'Anew' is refreshing and uplifting state of change. Nicely done Andrea. I love the message of your poem. Warm Smiles Connie
