Poem: The World Rolls By

"The World Rolls By"

This year...
I’ve known some changes,
more than I did expect;
much more than I could welcome
-or imagine or predict.

The things I took for granted,
that brought smiles to my face
-and made me feel so warm, secure-
no longer are in place.

Oh, change can be expected,
no longer will I doubt,
or hold on to a fantasy...

(That’s not what life’s about!)

nor look through rosy glasses,
regardless of the hue!
I’ll face the world with open eyes...
accepting what is true.

The world rolls by for others,
as if things are the same...
But do they suffer silently...
as lives are rearranged?

I like that Junie. I had an old, old uncle tell me once that life IS change, and boy can I relate in these past few years. So much we have no control over, and then the things I think I might could control slip right through my fingers 'cause I do get scared sometimes, if you know what I mean.

Happy night, sweet Junie.
