The Beauty and Acceptance of Change

The Beauty and Acceptance of Change
The Beauty and Acceptance of Change

Change is like swirling clouds,
colors imbued by sun and tinged
in myriad grays or pristine white,
as winds pick up in stormy plights
and seasons transform in hues of reds
and golds in autumn,
the greens of regenerating spring,
summer’s shimmering orange heat
and winter’s chill so bleak.

And we in growth and learning
must change, must rearrange our minds,
in learned thoughts and understanding
to accept the grind of evolving life,
the beauty, the joy, the despair
and plight of consequence,
all part of the paths we travail,
to avail the gifts of sentience
and to prevail on this gifted earth.

Change is the key to movement,
accepting that evolving is the way of life,
to remain in growth and gleaning knowledge,
in sight of truths that transform,
lead us to circumstances that perform
a duty of care, as we ascend in higher thought,
with compassion and love our paradigm,
to placate time in cycles,
each one a lifetime of ascension.

Like the colours of nature,
the seasons and the beauty instilled,
we too in knowledge and wisdom
change in demeanor and light,
auras like banners of color
in the thoughts we now attain,
gained in the changes of uplifting sight,
reality an open mind
and wisdom a vantage point of clarity.

Embracing change is a blessing,
for without resistance there is no pain,
just acceptance and the joy of growing,
and knowing the potential of life
can be held and advantaged,
limits non-existent,
for all those who ride the waves of change
and fear not the possibility of a fall,
a risk worth everything.
