Life Changing Events
There are life-changing events that alter heart and soul:
ordinary episodes can modify the whole.
Leaving parents to start school embarks independence:
scholastic autonomy becomes the ascendance.
Getting a driver's license is a rite of passage:
a major revised status marking "coming of age."
Commencement ceremonies usher in employment:
financial sufficiency is the prime arrangement.
First intimate encounters transcend expectancy:
overwhelming emotion and stunning ecstasy.
A man and woman unite in holy matrimony:
connubial transactions producing harmony.
Embracing newborn babies form a tenacious bond:
impregnable defenses instinctively respond.
Undiscriminating death transports loved ones away:
an irreversible loss holds bereavement dismay.
