Change Is Important

By Katijimo Jimo

 

Change is important

Even the little insignificant ones
Like growing to like a bitter vegetable
Or starting to sleep without pillows
Resonating better to things that hurt you
Friends now would only mean people whom you kinda know
And sometimes change is kind of funny
You change,I change
And we hurt each other
There's no winning or losing from change
It only got to make you stronger
Dad was my favourite person until he did not allow me to follow my dreams
Love is a twisted thing
Grandpa used to wait for his disobedient grandchildren lovingly on the porch until this year and he's not
Death is just too painful
Becoming a lady from a girl
And the cheerful greetings would turn to uneasy piercing stares 
This body has learned to walk with confidence despite having to ignore the fact that it is disrespected
Change is painful
Change is hard
It does not only take one legendary turn of event to change a life 
but all the things that does not feel the same anymore
