the world changed
The world changed.
It all began to fall apart.
Nothing makes sense anymore.
The world changed;
I have barely noticed.
For my world changed.
Friendships began to fall apart—
Yet fond farewells allowed
My heart fo finally rejoin my body
And mind to concentrate again.
Too many years too late
My home is where I live.
Free from nostalgic gazing into the past
My eyes were opened to see
Kindness in other eyes,
Beauty close at hand.
Awakened, I was surprised by my own strength.
Undistracted, I found new opportunity...
Which led me to further distraction.
My world changed,
And I have been too selfishly distracted by it.
So, it is with guilt that I despair
How the world has changed in my absence.
