Chains & Changes | Poetry 101 Rehab

Mara Eastern’s Poetry 101 Rehab
Hosted by Andy Townend
Prompt: Changes

 

“Chains and Changes”

changes break
chains that we
have forged
for ourselves
or chains we
have accepted
from others
benign
or not

change breaks
the links to safety
walls within which all
is familiar
benign
or not

change is
breaking chains
it presents new
pathways
to unfamiliar
or observed
from afar
countries, people
ideas,
neighborhoods,
languages
unthought of
days and years
benign
or not

changes
are potential—
which our chains
are
not
