THE IRONY OF CHANGE

Friends are lost and others are found.

Dreams are altered while beliefs and strength are tested.

Paths are abandoned or revisited.

Hopes and faith are renewed.

The past is revisited to seek mistakes, reasons, lessons and answers.

The future seems bleak and full of obstacles.

Words flow from lips whose minds are shallow of knowledge about you and how the world works.

Judgmental they become forgetting their place.

Be wary of such for elevation and excellence they know not and wish it not upon you.

So they are deceived, by the greed in them, to stop you as you take the path of change.

Towards becoming you,

Towards becoming great,

Towards becoming changed.

Reality and Illusions.

Traveling does to your soul the strangest of change

It opens your mind to the reality of things

It gives your eyes a clearer view

It changes the very pattern and nature of your thought

What seems opaque becomes transparent

What seems at a distance becomes a step away

Reality becomes a friend

Truth becomes a weapon

Justice becomes the only choice

A second chance is found in the lives of strangers

A new call is heard in their voices

A new horizon is seen in their struggles

Illusions disappear, as does the mirage on the road

For with each step taken is a distance reduced

And dreams become possible

For you have been altered and renewed

And will forever never be the same

At last, you find peace

And happiness follows you back home.
