CHANGE POEMS

C H A N G E

A Simile Poem

By Josie Whitehead

Change – regenerating - like the four seasons of nature -

Transforming our world with growth and restfulness.

 

Change – heartless - like the flowing stream of life

That carries us on its tide from birth to death .

 

Change – ruthless - like the storms and hurricanes

Which smite our world with indifference.

 

Change –immediate - like that very second in time

Which can reshape our world completely.

 

Change – callous - like those harsh words you said

Which broke my heart like shattering glass.

 

Change – sombre –like the day which stole my parents

And closed forever a love-window in my world.

 

Change – guileful - like the gaming table

That deviously stole my money and my self-respect.

 

Change – joyous - like that happy meeting

With the person who can change your life forever.

 

Change - continuous - like the ebb and flow of ocean tides

Which kiss the shores of each continent of our world.
