Everyday is change, got to change with it, or become stagnant...



Sound of rain on the roof again,

For the next five days too,

Better again, learn to live with it,

As we are back in the rainy season, treat it like Zen…


It is here, what can we do, short of constantly feeling blue,

Don’t want that to occur must just learn to enjoy our wet view,

Not complain, as I usually, way too much do & do & do…


So take the rain when it comes, in the summer will be hot,

We will be wishing for the wet, the cold, but not,

Able to achieve its benefits till the fall & winter return being out lot…


Everyday is new, everyday is beautiful, everyday brings change; let us take this cue,

From Nature so pretty, so wonderfully changing,

Everyday brings with it a new beginning…


Find peace through change, through differences each and every day,

No better way to live than to accept the inevitable,

Change is constant, cannot stay in one place, move on with life,

Or become stagnant; living along with the rest, all in strife…
