This poem Change is inspired by Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide. Hope you all like it. 🙂
My life is approaching this new chapter,
I recently turned 32,
people think you have your shit together,
the truth is halfway so,
inside though sometimes I don’t have it all figured out,
figuring it out as I go along,
there is still a sense of being like a scared child inside,
what is the next move?
What move do I make next
and am I able for all that will come with it?
I have been afraid of the next chapter,
I have built my life around a different way
and change is daunting,
all these things to figure out,
feeling pressure to know what I’m doing,
everything is so old but so new,
comfortable within the hidden,
hurt within the hidden,
knowing there is a path to follow,
to live fully.
I am scared stiff
but I have to be brave,
be bolder in my decisions,
I seen that reflection in my mind
of who I could be just by being me
and it was beautiful,
I understood self love in its purest form
and I refuse to let it go,
I can’t let it go,
change is scary but necessary,
fear won’t suddenly go
but I will embrace my future despite it.
