Change Your Life Forever

For De’s Quadrille prompt at dVerse Poets Pub. Write a poem of exactly 44 words excluding title. You must use the word “change” or a variant of change: changes, changed, changeling… I am not playing today.

Change Your Life Forever
“Change your life forever
The world will change when you change yourself
Change yourself in Silence…”
Change your life by World Order

This poem doesn’t come with trigger messages.
But this warning is given:
Your life will change.
Stop whining. Stop living in a dream world.
Open the door and go in.
If you want the world to change
Get off your ass and change it.

    Amen, sister. I could not agree more. Now, as Mother Teresa would say, everybody go home and love your family.

    If you never change you have to be prepared to be changed instead, and that’s a lot more painful

    When I read, “I’m not playing today,” I thought you were refusing to write a Quadrille of change. I’m glad to see I was mistaken.

      Lol. I am not testy Bev. I am just not choose g to prate on about bad things without doing anything about it. For example, volunteer 3 times a week at a soup kitchen with various feeding programs. I get tired of people going on and on about hunger or childhood hunger who do nothing but write sad poetry and moan. No I am not testy, I am angry. ,😊

    Like me, Toni, you have with a lot of rage to control or extoll For me, aging health issues present changes annually, and accommodation is the word for the day.

    I wholeheartedly agree! Better to get out there and bring change in one’s life rather than to sulk .. ❤

    Damn right! I always squint at people going bananas over lottery tickets. if you want to change you life, DO something, don’t count on a one in a zillion sweepstakes.

    A fun prompt – I enjoyed googling different quotes. I posted them at the bottom of my post. 🙂

    if you mess with the bull, you get the horns … and this is a sure fire stomping up and down, get off yer ass … and do some.thing.

    even small steps are steps … which is better than nothing. or

    “Change yourself in Silence…” That’s my favorite.

    What a straightforward message you have given us through this poem!
    Be the change, you wish to see in this world!
    Thanks for inspiring through your piece.

    Nice line and good advice: “Open the door and go in.”

    I hear your message as I am involved in projects of my own. Drumming is a way for me to change the vibrational frequencies in the universe which brings change.

    Be the change you desire to bring forth, gift someone in need.
