Open To New

Life
Doesn’t ask us
For permission
To change

It just changes
Over time
Over night

And though
We are comfortable
With what is familiar

Life demands
That we stay open
To new
 
Open to new
When all we want
Is the old
 
Open to new
When what’s ahead
Is unknown

And though I do not want new

I need to remember
I have done this
Before
 
If I wasn’t open to new
I wouldn’t have tried Zumba
And found the wonderful tribe
That comes with it

If I wasn’t open to new
I wouldn’t have spiralized a zucchini
And learned fun new ways
To eat well

If I wasn’t open to new
I wouldn’t have moved to a small town
And learned how at home
I could feel


If I wasn’t open to new

I would have missed out
On the next steps
That have led
Straight into the richest
Parts of my life

So though it hurts
I will
Stay open
To new

And I will
Become new
As well
