Hi! I love writing about animals, fantasy and just expressing myself through words. 'A painting paints a thousand words' so why not a thousand words form a painting?

Message from Writer

Hi! I write for hobby and for escaping troubles. I love to write as I get to 'live through' the stories I improvise on the spot. It makes me able to feel and be someone else in a world where I can change anything.I hope my words can make a difference

Change

April 8, 2016

PROMPT: Time Traveler

0
Eons, centuries, years, months.
Weeks, days, minutes,
seconds.
In such short time

Things can completely change.

Red, orange, yellow.
Green, blue, purple,
white
In such small differences.

Things can never be the same.

One day your born
the next you're crawling
after, you start talking
Then you start walking.

Miraculous things, they are, Change.

First a child.
Second a student.
A teen.
An adult.

Things can oh so drastically move on.

The things now
become what was then.
What we love now
We could hate then.

Changes in shape, thought, mind.

One day two parents
the next, one left.
One day two parents
the next, none left.

We never know how big a change can occur.

One day we stand
the next we sit
for the rest of our
lives

We may not always like Change.

One day we meet
we love
we grow together
One day, it ends.

Sometimes, Change brings tears.

One day we play
in a field of beautiful flowers.
One day, we cry
amoungst a barren wasteland.

Sometimes, lots of tears.

One day we rise.
We soar
One day, we fall
crushed in a heap on the ground.

Sometimes, it brings anger.

One day, a perfect family
husband, wife, children and all
One day, violence and a shattered home
where no love is found.

Sometimes it brings violence.

One day, he drives
down the road to the shop.
One day, he's gone
in a collision of cars.

Sometimes it brings grief.

One day, you're praised
encouraged by your parents.
One day, expectations are raised
disappointment tastes bitter, does it not?

Sometimes it bring hurt.

One day, you're friends
everyone knows and loves you.
One day, you're alone
backs all turned to you.

Sometimes it brings confusion.

One day, you're friends
working on things together.
One day, you're enemies
for how he's backstabbed you.

Sometimes it reveals betrayal.

One day, she conceives a child
happiness within her womb.
One day, you both cry
a miscarriage.

Sometimes it brings loss.

One day, he's on your lap, 
smilling and laughing, "Moma"
One day, he's left the house
and never comes back.

Sometimes it breaks our hearts.

One day, we see polar bears
happily race across the North.
One day, the ice melt
and the white mammals drown.

Sometimes it brings shock.

One day, you plant a seed
water it carefully each day.
One day, its killed by a weed
that squeezed the life out of it.

Sometimes it brings horror.

One day, you're a child
carefree, happy each day.
One day, you're a teen
stressed, depressed, overwhelmed with emotions.

Sometimes...

Sometimes its unbearable.

One day, you're a writer
you write books for the young.
One day, you're a beggar
on the streets pleading for food.

Sometimes...

Sometimes its just cruel.

One day, people praise your works
in which you poured your heart into.
One day, it doesn't matter
and your efforts thrown into the fire.

Sometimes...

Sometimes it makes you wonder.

Why?

Why can Change be so powerful?

Why can it be so quick?

And yet, leave such destruction in our lives?

How can it take so much?

In the blink of an eye?

Why?

Why is there Change?

What is Change?


Change.

A powerful word.

Something we can never control.

But something... we can always find good in.

One day, you're eating on the streets
with your brothers, begging for food.
One day, you're attending school
making progress in your studies.

Change... is amazing.

One day, you lose him
he's love for you dead.
One day, you meet another
and he never lets you go.

Change can bring good... and bad.

One day, your plant
is withered and dead.
One day, surrounding it, feeding off the nutrients
are thousands of the young plant.

Change can bring so much more than it can take.

One day, you're parents ignore you
drinks and cigarettes litter the floor.
One day, you hug, sobbing in you're parents' arms
as they apologise and tell you how much they love you.

Change... it can control the world around.

Turn it into something...

just...

beautiful.

One day, you're drawing 
making silly things you imagine.
One day, you're an artist
spreading the canvas with a vibrant of colours

Change, is wonderful.

One day, you're a child
who loves to dance for fun.
One day, you're a dancer
bathing the stage in beauty.

Change is mystical.

One day, you're pretending
playing with others on what you aren't.
One day, you're an actor
playing the same game, but for a movie screen.

Change,

Change...

Change is everywhere.

Change is here.

And it starts

with us.

With you.

So do not fear it,

take it.

And with it make the world a better place.

Who knows?

You might use it for something...

that will truly...

Change everything.
