Poem Commentary

Signifies a turning point for me in my life...

Winds of Change

The winds of change are coming...
I feel a difference in the air...
It feels like rain...

Refreshing torrents of sparkling droplets...
Wash away the pain and fear...
Making room for peace... Finally...

Decisions, choices, difficulties I must face...
To receive this change...
My sacrifice will NOT be in vain...

I may end up with nothing...
Just my guitar, and my dignity...
But... That's enough for a start...

Tomorrow is a new day...
Tomorrow brings new life...
Once again... I begin... The journey...

I told myself, "This is the last time..."
The last time I will allow...
The pain to invade my existence...

Yes... The winds of change are coming...
Tomorrow brings to me new life...
My sacrifice will not be in vain...

Nothing is ever done... In vain...

strong work keli. Your ending seemed to taper off where I would have directed it a bit stronger judgin by the strength of the rest of the piece, but overall is very good. Keep it up

Very resolute... Scream it to the world... Scream it back at the one who made it happen... Change is not always a good thing, but in some cases, it's the only thing left for a chance at real happiness... Make the change but, have a vision of where you want to go and don't lose sight of it.... Good short write...

It is a very good poem, however you did tend to go overboard in using the elipses, so much so it kind of detracted from your poem made it look amateurish. However you did get your point across. Everything does have its purpose.

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
