Change

As much as we experience change, why is it so difficult to effect “controlled change”? Controlled change as I term it is calculatedly transforming behavior, breaking away from habits particularly those detrimental in the long run. Ultimately, we all benefit from favorable change. Regardless of differences, we all just seek contentment.





Title: CHANGE
Author: O. Asojo


Change is constant with time
Of what use if detrimental to my kind

Change claims all; it’s all I ever hear
Change & change, Left, right & everywhere

Change says the vagabonds in power
It will come, their favorite phrase to utter

Change is what is said all week through
Change from week one through week fifty two

Change from dusk till dawn, Change from sunset till sun-up
Change, a song, like a vendor promoting news all year long
Change, not yesterday or today but when tomorrow comes


Knocked at its door but change was gone
So patiently you and I wait, until the day it comes
