Poem: Time Changes the Scenery

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Life Changes" by Thomas Rhett

poem-time-changes-the-scene

I don’t fit in
like I used too,
maybe age as taken its toll
or I have grown out of the scene
desiring my time at home.

Nothing new,
nothing even remotely similar,
to the times we had back then,
I guess I am an old folkie
set in my ways.

It’s hard to see
but I suppose it’s true,
life moves on when you are content and happy
not looking for ways to end the solitude.

"Old Man" by Neil Young

Thank you for reading, Tiyasha.

I do believe you are right. Time definitely changes our perspective and the desires we have now are different.

Just ever so slightly you do not even realize it until later.

Thanks again.

A very real and relatable observation. I agree with Lorna, with age our way of looking and understanding the same things change. It includes our change in taste, strengthens our ideals and age and time bring about changes that sometimes we don't even realize.

Nice reminder, Lorna.

Yes with music you can be taken back..its nice to remember.

In everyday life...out in public things seem to be different.

One can pretend to fit in for the moment, but he really doesn't feel it inside his heart.

Kinda like...He would rather be at home.

I find when I listen to the music I loved years ago, it takes me back in time to that younger version of me. I still enjoy the music only in a different way. Lovely poem Brenda.
