Life evolves never static
For animals not problematic
Roll with changes no resist
No storms just some mist

Humans different we have mind
With stories of what’s left behind
Fuss agitate anxiety rules
Countless hours being fools

White knuckles resist changes
Fight gravity as world rearranges
Static lock up quickly
Pray for rescue feeling icky

How great yesterday was
Looking back creating buzz
Opportunity knocking at the door
Say we don’t want anymore

Then complain we are stuck
At last see can’t pass the buck
Take responsibility for your station
Deliverance knocks say yes with elation

What form is your resistance and how good are you at transcending?

What value has resistance provided and what cost?
