Change

Knowing enough is enough,

Begins with believing you are enough.

*

When fertile ground becomes barren,

Pastures are spent,

What was full has emptied;

*

Freezing in place is unsound!

Find a peace in movement.

*

Ride out the regret,

Face down the sadness,

Accept that all things change;

*

Turn from victimhood,

Find a hero’s grace.

  1. Lovely short sentences in this poem. They really emphasise the sentiment behind each line. I enjoyed these lines especially:

    “Freezing in place is unsound!

    Find a peace in movement.”

    “Turn from victimhood,

    Find a hero’s grace.” ❤

  2. “Find a peace in movement.” This line struck me hard. We associate peace with stillness but how true that our actions can take us to new places in our state of mind, bringing new opportunities and ultimately peace in our lives.

    1. Sometimes movement is the only way to find peace especially if a situation has become untenable

  3. I love the ending: it’s really up to us whether we become the heroes or the victims of our own lives!
