As Time Has Gone By
Random Poem by Steven Vitte
As time has gone by, I have noticed some changing.
I've watched people I know go by the wayside.
I've listened to the fading echoes of once relevant conversations.
I've seen the blind lead the blind, straight into the ditch.
Most of all, the changing of attitudes, which involves spiritual battles.
Change can be good and it can be bad.
Distancing myself from those I've been close to has made me sad.
I have my explanations for wanting to change for the better.
Some will understand me, and some won't.
As time has gone by, I've learned to move on.
As time has gone by, I've had to give up a lot.
I've had to decide for myself what is truly important.
If others don't have a slot left open for me, then I will move on.
Not because of envy nor jealousy have I decided.
I just wanted to preserve my spiritual armor in my battles.
Some people are simply too afraid of change.
They will stick to what they know and not question anything.
I see it in them, their hesitation toward new developments.
If only they could see their underlying folly.
As time has gone by, I've realized that they will stay asleep.
As time has gone by, I've grown more jolly in knowing that I will be just fine.
As time has gone by, I've gotten closer to the truth in which I read.
As time has gone by, I've realized that soon I will rest in my final destination.
As time has gone by, I have seen just who will win and lose these battles.
When the time is at hand, my exit will be grand.
