The world I'm in is always changing;
Constantly spinning 'round.
I'm the only one it seems
Still standing on the ground.

Just when it seems things are going right
And every thing is running smooth,
A wrench will fly in the works of things
Then everything is new.

Why can't things just stay like they are
And never fall apart,
Family stay family
And friends stay close to my heart?

I guess that's just the way it is
And maybe I should just play my part.
I'll toss up my hands, take a dive,
And make a brand new start.

Although, it will be hard
to keep going and not look back
I will never forget the places I've been
And those who have touched my heart.

I've never been happy with the ending of this one.

~Donna J

Do not look back in anger, or forward in fear, but around in awareness. -James Thurber

branch out

I am once again impressed with your skills with rhyme and meter, and the poem is well crafted if not a bit sentimental for my tastes.

I would like to take this chance to encourage you to explore other avenues with your obvious talent. Perhaps something a little more moody or punchy. I'm simply curious to see what your talent would make of a slightly different subject matter.

Just a humble suggestion.

Thank you. I really am ready to branch out now... and learn something new. Every minute I spend here I learn a little something but my time is so limited. I recently read the latest Exposed! and was very interested in the "Villanelle"... I've been kicking that around but nothing has sparked yet. I think my brain has frozen with the landscape around here.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I does mean so much!
