Yearning to Grow, a poem

IMG_7525 (2)


There are times when
the stretch and roar
of change comes
licking at our heels.
We become afraid
cowering between
what is and what was
dragging our uncertain steps
toward certain doom
as told by our impatient hearts.
Then, later
the sun shall shine
and purpose will grow
beyond what we expect
beauty will show herself
in ways we did not see.
How wonderful it is,sometimes
that despite our strong desire
to run away…
we have to run straight ahead
into what we are afraid of
only to see –
beauty comes with change
and often necessitates it.

(c) Sumyanna 2017


This poem was written specifically for the image above.  Trying to blend a bit of my photography and writing 🙂


Writer of poetry and seeker of knowledge. I hope to inspire and be inspired by my words and the world around me.
