change is hard – solsc#26

When I was young

my dad always told me

that the only thing

you can be assured of in life

is that things will change.


He told me this

because I did not like change.

Change is hard.


The seasons are changing

from winter to spring.

There are all kinds

of spring signs

to behold and rejoice in –

flowers blooming,

birds building nests,

leaves emerging on trees and bushes,

and warmer air all around.

But change is hard.


Today winter is fighting back.

Our temperature has fallen

almost 30 degrees

since morning.

The wind is blowing

and the rain is falling.

Those signs of spring

aren’t so perky anymore.

They now know

that change is hard.


But change is a good thing.

Perhaps if it weren’t so difficult,

we wouldn’t realize its value.

So just as in nature,

people hang on

and ride it out,

knowing that what is to come

is better than what was behind.


Something worth waiting for,

even though change is hard.

  4. […] I said before, change is hard. Something within us fights against it and tries to alter its course. You see that in nature as […]
