                                         CHANGE     

              I wonder if the sadness I feel 
              Is the shadow 
              Of my profound happiness 
              Something is finished 
                 
              That was filled with wonderful excitement 
              The search is over 
              Now it is time to work 
              This is something new 
                 
              It is as if a tiger were lurking 
              Unseen and waiting 
              To pounce on me and kill 
              This, my new beauty
