Poem: Feeling the Changes of the Heart

I am changing, growing:

I am observing, over thinking:

Yet, I am learning even when it seems

Impossible, I know not—much,

What is happening around

My surroundings, to my heart,

To my body, to my mind, to the ones I love:

To the ones who forsake me:

To the ones who did not believe in me

Or wish for me to succeed.

I am growing, giving thanks to the people

Who knows more than I, who may not see,

That I too have far greater dreams

I am giving thanks to the one

That is close to my heart, that know me,

‘Love,’ has willfully covered me.
