We must make hay when the sun shines bright
let our dreams change hue in the silver of the night.
We must take a turn when the path is blocked
and explore the lanes we usually do not.
For the path that’s familiar might lead us away,
From roads we must travel to help us find our place.
We must use cover that suits the weather,
Wear cotton when it’s hot, greet the rains with a bright umbrella.
Walk in the sun till it warms our skin,
And makes our hearts happy so we smile from within.
We must be open, have a mindset for growth,
Get into the water and go with the flow.
We must make hay when the sun shines bright,
And let our dreams change colour in the silver of the night.
WE must be the change and let life lead us on,
To fields of plenty and the warmth of the sun.
This poem is about the second part of a journey we all make, and the happiness that comes from learning the lessons that life wishes to teach us.
I wrote on the first part of this journey in ‘Dear Change’.
