Change is an imposing state of heart,
when love is torn and loss is all there is,
but in a righteous direction,
a knowing start to yet another path in life, a new journey.
Often seen as dismal failure,
inflicted pain and love’s rejection,
few know when change is needed,
cannot see the wisdom in its perceived torment,
but necessity drives a knowing mind.
To that mind, change must be,
for without it crisis gathers far too much pain,
and in not acknowledging necessity,
we create far worse circumstances
and change more devastating.
From a naive viewpoint
rejected love seems harsh indeed,
and the hurt exceeds its due, but
in our hearts we know what’s needed,
and leaving is often the kindest way
to alleviate what could be, later.
Someone leaving could be transformative,
and even for those deserted
a chance to change for the better,
even though the mind is clouded with hurt,
one day to see the wisdom.
No-one wants to hurt anyone deliberately,
and where love bloomed is sacred,
yet often time moves us on,
for what could go wrong is worse,
and in that way we save ourselves.
Kindness can sometimes seem cruel,
but it is not, just a greater understanding
of life’s movement, its direction,
and holding onto stagnation hurts both souls worse,
when reality finds its place.
