Poem Commentary

Like chameleons, sometimes we have to "change our colors" to fit the circumstances of changes in our lives.

Chameleons

  Chameleons we must be

      In a world forever changing

           For the sequel to tranquility

                 Is impending rearranging

                      Could be news of sudden tragedy

                            Or a husband leaves his wife

                                    Before night stars can twinkle

                                       Chaos rules your life

                                           Maybe life has lost its luster

                                          Stagnation’s dulled the sheen

                                    The mind’s become too idle

                                Wreaking damage unforeseen

                          Hence the chameleon emerges

                    Commencing transformation

              Altering its persona

           To command the situation

              Like the chameleon in nature

                  We employ a disguise

                      Instinctively our defense

                          ‘Til a plan we can devise

I really enjoyed this insightful poem. Of course the format is very cool, but the poem itself really shines well. Life is filled with the unexpected, either adapt or be overcome. Nice job on this.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
