We can make change or it can be forced upon us. We can accept change or, against all logic, we can reject it.
We can not deny change. It is a constant. As the clouds change above us, life changes around us.
What we do with change is under our control. Even the most crushing change leaves rubble with which we can build new structures.
And what change can be more destructive than the change we allow ourselves to fall into when the winds change against us?
The ability to rise against the immeasurable force of negativity in life is inherent, but not so often practiced that all can say they’re standing.
To lay down and be walked upon by the deafening, angry army of doubt within is so much easier than to place palm to ground and push ourselves up that we’re decorated in mental bootprints.
But nothing tangible holds us here. No chains bind us to our weakness. No rope ties us to our sadness. There is no locked door trapping our anger inside.
Change that requires effort and that we must encourage, force and inspire ourselves to practice is not impossible to achieve.
We are sentient. We are strong. We must be willing.
Though we feel lost and separated, we are not. Through our own consciousness have we made the decision to lay and through this same power must we make the decision to fight.
WE ARE CHANGE! We are beautiful, flowering CHANGE!
And we will never be as grand as we are the moment we accept the effort.
And we will never be as strong as we are the moment we make the effort.
And we can.
And we will.
Or we will die. Murderers of ourselves.
We are change. Wilt or grow… We are change.
