Forever Changing World
By Jordan Romaine, Grade 9
We have all these plans
to go somewhere
but life gets in the way.
We dream big of what we want
to accomplish in life,
ready, set, go …
with the fashion craze or sports,
forgetting who was with us from the beginning,
leaving friends in the dust
as we run after beauty that fades.
What matters are the choices we make,
the friends we gain,
the lasting things of the Lord
that hold us in place in this forever changing world.
