The Winds Of Change
Author: Catyrose


As my feet hit the pavement this morning
I longed to keep going
To where I do not know
It's time for a change
I can feel it as I move forward
My back to the cold and blustery wind
Propelled onward by an unknown force
Taking hold of my hand
Pulling, pushing, shoving me away from the familiar
Faces I have to come to know
The time has come to let you go
Wanderlust is upon me again
Restlessness consumes my soul
In need of direction
I long to break free
Of what others perceive
As my destiny
Those who think they know me
Havenít got a clue
Acting as protectors
They squelch and smother
The person I long to be
Please stop caring
Or pretending as if you do
I canít move forward with you by my side
Playing childish games
One up, one down
I canít go on this way
Not even for one more day
Itís tearing me apart
No longer will I allow you to play
With this too sensitive of hearts
Cruel words veiled in a sadistic sense of humor
Hurled my way
Satisfaction you derive
As the tears well up inside
Iíll never understand it
Iíll never comprehend
Why it is you continue to believe
That you can call yourself
A friend

Moods come and go, Within us all chages occur today, Friend see us change and cheer for your strength, Other fear that change and hold you back Forever still your friend I'm here in good or bad Loved reading this one with a smile that could talk
