I change. I change like the seasons. My ideals shift. My inspirations cling then let go. My ambitions are filled then are bare. My aspirations sprout then shrivel. My goals turn from green to brown.

And vice versa.

Just when I feel like all is lost and that change is the end of me, ideals shift in my favor; new inspirations cling to my creations; bare branches fill with crisp ambitions; aspirations bud again; and what was once brown and barren gushes green as fresh goals are set.

The trick is not keeping things from changing, the trick is knowing what changes and how it has changed.


About Jeremiah Dowling

I write poetry and take crazy pictures in an Orange Chair all over the United States while reading amazing books.

      Aww.. shucks, thanks! ha… well back 945 days ago I was challenging myself to write every weekday for a whole year, ha, but lately I’ve been delving more into poetry which takes longer for me to process and dissect, but really I just need to write more consistently. Anyway, I do have a poem I need to put up today, so keep a look out… Thanks again for all your encouragement!

      P.S. If you want to check out some other weird creative avenues of mine check out my other site: haha… It might bring a smile or too…
