Finalization of Goals: Touching the Intangible

Over the course of years,

Over the course of days,

Over the course of writing this sentence

The so-called "future" has changed immensely

Similar to how seasons occur

Changing colors, changing shapes

And yet each individual tree knows it owns the same roots it did a year prior.

Similar to crashing waves,

Colliding, constantly moving and changing in a fluid motion,

And yet every bit of water still exists

So granted,

I've changed as a person over the course of years

I've changed as a person over the course of days

I've even changed over the course of writing this sentence

I might be a tree, moving one day forward

I might be a waterfall.

The key is, though, that I'm constantly growing, constantly moving

Over the course of years

Over the course of days

Over the course of writing this sentence

 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
