We thought
We should map out our future
Change
Redefines the boundaries

We tried
To script our careers
Change
Pushes us in new directions

We charted
Plans for our marriage
Change
Forces us off course

We resolved
To keep order in our lives
Change
Upsets our patterns


We hoped
For peace of mind
Change
Looms overhead

We have learned

Ignore the direction
Of change
Regret
The consequences

Resist the demands
Of change
Lament
Inflexibility

Disregard the power
Of change
Rue
Its presence

Change

Our dictatorial
Family member


Ever present
Ever relentless
