Moving On – Poem for Hour 12

The only thing certain about life

Is that nothing remains the same,

Everything will change,

People will come and go,

Hearts and souls

Will be rearranged,

As time and tide wait for no man

And you pack all your worldly goods into a removal van.

The next chapter calls for a change of scene,

To shake things up a bit

And start afresh –

I know exactly what you mean,

It’s just that I haven’t quite finished this chapter yet,

But worry not, I’ll soon be gone

Because that’s what life’s about – moving on

To stagnate would be a mistake,

I need to accelerate

So you don’t overtake

And leave me behind

Life’s invitation to settle has been declined.
