The Change That Comes

by Jean Jones

Nothing comes close to it-
There's joy, there's happiness,
there's even love, but this-
this is a loss of control,
when your body
replaces your mind,
and everything voluntary
becomes involuntary,
and when you lose it,
this religion,
the change that comes
leaves everything to the wind,

2020 Jean Jones
