Will I Master Change, or Will Change Master Me?

A Poem by Dick Biggs

Life’s turning points are as sure as the die
Just a matter of when, so why not decide?

To embrace these transitions as ways to grow

‘Tis folly to ignore what you already know.
Make a vow to adapt to the crises of life

There’s no reason to suffer more stress or strife.

Quite often change becomes a blessing in time

While making you wiser in pursuit of your prime.

No change is impossible, no one is exempt

You can step out in faith or shrug with contempt.

Life comes in cycles, no two are the same

To claim nothing’s new is a naïve game.
Some change is impractical, some thing must endure

You need worthile values, so profound and pure.

Plus a noble purpose to guide you each day

And give life meaning as you forge your way.
But most things do change, it’s a natural law

You can believe this is truth or stand there in awe.

It may be uncomfortable, it may cause pain—

Won’t a regretful heart be a greater strain?
With every change, there’s an outcome to bear

So accept the challenge, for life’s seldom fair.

Be willing to risk and you’re bound to find

More courage and strength from a positive mind.
Be bold, be daring, be receptive to change

For most things are better when you rearrange.

Get out of the rut, seek a new vitality

Move beyond the old to a fresh reality.
Ah, life has turning points, they won’t disappear

Rise up to greet them and conquer your fear.

The choice is simple, it’s as clear as can be:

Will I master change or will change master me?
