Winds of Change
Jack Berrell 1993 (Altrincham)
When you think the Winds of Change,
In what forms, across which range,
You can hope or can despair,
But should you really? For I am there.
With the time right now, you question how,
Is it North and South, is it then or now?
Your journey is coursing, flowing, shifting, changing, ebbing, stalling, falling, and calling,
How do you tell, when you’ve suddenly fell?
When the Winds of Change occur at the unlikeliest of times,
Channel your energies across positive lines,
Transcending space and time, all our paths cross and converge at the coordinate, the single point in time.
For the Winds of Change have occurred and now you have conferred,
Transferred, well-versed, versatile, adaptable in the true sense of the word,
You’ve now confirmed that your direction is no longer deterred, nor is your journey deferred.
The Winds of Change
Look forward wistfully and do not counterchange.
