Nest

Cold, warm, breezy

Sad, happy, angry

I have felt these profoundly

 

Food, shelter, clothing

Cocooned, pampered and enlightened

I have been provided with more than enough

 

With food for the mind and the soul

I have thrived

Blissfully, carelessly, and conservatively

 

Now that I am far from my nest,

It is difficult to recognize the person

I was before

Neither can I recognize the person

I am now

 

Being away from home

has taught me a lot

About Independence, Freedom and Tolerance

But above all, about change

 

Change is inevitable

Change is unstoppable

But Change is not irreversible

Only you can make that one step

Towards change

 

Wise words can be listened to

But they are worth nothing

If they are not understood and experienced
