May

May
Sophia Scorcia

This time last year

the feeling of loss sunk in

Change rampaged through the halls

and the word forever was uncertain.

 

I didn’t know if I was ready yet.

To grapple with the word change is a daunting fight.

But still, I fought. 

 

The word change was charming to them.

I couldn’t hear a thing.

I was losing and fast.

The word forever was fading away.

 

Suddenly, in the heat of combat, I looked over and saw another fighter: adaptation

 

I look into adaptation, and see the present day: May

 

I see my friends.

My friends from the year before.

I see myself, laughing with them

We are happy, even with changes’ victory

And I realize I shouldn’t have been fighting with the word change at all

 

Change and adaptation merge, and create one word: acceptance 

 

I have always been prepared to handle change

because the important things in life stay constant

They don’t run away just because of new charm

They stay with you in spite of the charms

 

And the word change is eventually another memory
