Progress is impossible without change and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Patterns of behavior tend to recur
Behavior of others and mine
Our responses to stress may differ
But in known molds they always align.
Life, it seems, for the most part
Is lived in a fluid chain
Of patterns repeated intervals apart
In situations varied, again and again.
Creatures of habit we tend to be
Unwilling to change familiar patterns
Courage it takes to change mentality
Back to old habits we tend to run.
Change is the only constant around,
The world keeps changing ever so fast,
Changes in manner of living abound
Letting go of the forgotten past.
Human behavior is the last to change
Ever so resilient, ever so stubborn
But slowly, albeit in a narrow range
Change does occur in known patterns.
Change is the need of the hour
In a world shrinking with rapidity
We need to stretch our vision far,
Connect with each other with avidity.
Forget differences of race and creed
Remember we are all the same
Bound together despite individual greed
We are just pawns in Creation’s game.
