Tighten Your Seatbelts

Poem Written by Sandra Chukwudumebi Obiora 11.37am  21.05.2013 ©

‘Things are about to change! Prepare your heart for things will not stay the same.

You were wrong to indulge so much my dear. Stand up, dust up.

Unwise I might add, because now it is very hard for you to let go.

You should have just schemed the surface. Should not have gone in so deep.’

‘Now you are lost. Not sure why you must lose this comfort, if you will.

Yes you will. Reality is cruel my darling. So tie up your laces. Get ready.’

‘It will be taken away from you like it was never present.

It will become just like a mere figment of your imagination.’

‘Tighten your belts’; said the host.

‘Prepare for the next stage of your ride,

That phase where you lose it all again, to get it all back again;

In new forms, new faces, new shapes, new sizes, new voices, new knowledge’ he added.

For indeed many things will be lost,  and many others gained.

Still you must persevere in this new weather you are soon to enter. Tighten your belt my love.’

‘Latch on to your parachute right now. Keep your head high.

For soon, the latch will be forced open, the wind will be let in, and you sent flying. So be strong!’.

New Skin By Samuel Balyejusa

“People do not resist change because they do not like it.
We love change, we get new haircuts every now and then, we change our clothes daily and we are always eager to try the newest restaurant in town.
People resist change because they don’t understand it.

It is paramount that we learn to embrace change because that is the very essence of learning. Without learning, we stagnate only for the ever changing world to catch up with us and force us to change; usually under much less favorable circumstances.

Take the steps to embrace change and avoid being forced to change as soon as what you know is no more.”
