Did We Change?


Over the years“, that is a cliche’ for sure! But it has really been years and there is no other better way to start it.

Time has just rolled on like a ball all the way down to the ground from the hill.

Here I’m the ball and the hill represents the people. 

And there is the time that smiles at me with a smirk.

The path that stands in between me and the hill is the “Change“.

The ball carried a few stones, leaves and dust with it.

And I consider the stones, leaves and dust as my treasures.

Did we change?

That wasn’t just a poem. It had a story in it. Here, I’m referring “we” as you, me, us, the reader, and anyone whom we can connect to.

Yes we did change. We are bound to change as time goes on. Suddenly, we feel that the things that looked great before, are not great anymore. Mind you! It is just a feeling. And the things that looked awful once looks cool now.

Ah ha…

What has happened to us now. Did we change?

Yes, I think we have changed. Time has a penchant to make us feel that people around us have changed.

But the reality is that we have changed.

It is a good feeling to know that life has really changed. Even my writing has changed over the years. My words have changed. And so is the world.

My feelings have changed. My outlook has changed. My priorities have changed. My life has changed.

When you read this, do you feel that you have changed, when you look back? If so, do comment on…

  1. The beauty of writing is that it is an act of transcendence. We span space and time and place our thoughts within other minds for their consideration, and change it. Even if it is to reject our ideas and thoughts.
    Great philosophical piece!

  2. YES….almost everything has changed over years…Anoop, as you said “My feelings have changed. My outlook has changed. My priorities have changed. My life has changed”…….to understand that , no need to look back…its like a pain in my heart ….for me…i stopped my writing…reading…and started to focus on husband , children,job….
