The Change

Jaibala/ May 9, 2014/ Poetry

We met, We spoke, we loved,

Didn’t care for the problems,

You showed me what I can be,

To believe in myself and how,

To be strong and confident,

To fight my battles till the end.


Then what changed,

What went wrong,

When It was time,

For you to be strong,

To be brave and fight,

You lost all the sight.


Or did I misjudge you, was I wrong,

In believing you all along,

To forgive you when you put me down,

To hear things right when they were wrong,

To see only what I wanted to see,

You were never the person I thought you’d be.


The strength and the confidence was in me,

The truth, comes out eventually,

It was never good, you were never right,

What I wanted to be, coloured my sight,

The changes I made, the battles I won,

They all came from within me, not from anyone.
