wind of change

-

A drink isn't hard to swallow,
but a divorce, a lost child, death, they are.
The wind of change comes up, destroys dreams,
ends marriages, sifts through plans, hopes,
throws out what it wants.

A drink isn't hard to swallow,
but growing old, pains, drying dogs, they are.
The wind of change comes up, rips our garments,
exposes our frailties, our nakedness,
thoughtlessly shreds our defenses.

A drink isn't hard to swallow.
