Sometimes change is necessary

The wild calls us home, 

and we resist. 

 

Subtly the wind breaks, and life takes. 

We search for answers where there are none, 

and try to rationalize where there are some, 

but we find there is no unique answer

for something that spreads like a cancer. 

 

We familarize ourselves with the routine

until it's snatched from underneath 

us

and we run from the discomfort

because of the truth it hides:

we're not ready to face what we must, 

to do as we need, 

to find a place to rest and heed

the warnings we recieve. 

 

The wild calls us home, 

and we resist. 

 

Subtly, the wind shifts, and the life we knew drifts

away. 

Together but separate we burn the last wick

and blow out a flame that will never exist 

again. 

The end becomes the beginning of something 

grand; 

but what we cannot see, we cannot hear, 

but we can feel 

because change is afoot 

and that's what makes us feel alive. 

 

The wild calls us home, 

and we must not resist.
