POEMS: “Change” by James Dillet Freeman



I have resisted change with all my will …
Cried out to life, “Pass by life and leave me still.”
But I have found as I have trudged time’s track
That all my wishing will not hold life back.
I cannot bid the merest moment “stay.”
So finding I have no power to change
I have changed my self. And this is strange.
But I have found when I let change come,
The very change that I was fleeing from
Has often held the good I had prayed for,
And I was not the less for change, but more.
Once I accepted life and was not loathe to change
I found change was the seed of growth.
