Oh, How Time Can Change Things

One who was once crude
Is now impeccable
The change
And almost

A man
Who was once
Seen as incomplete
Is now
One that
Hordes seek

That is the truth
Put forth
So bleak

Had she known
She’d probably freak
For it was
Her hand
That he’d once
Came to seek

Oh how this reeks
Of unreliability
Just how could it be
That a failure
Of society
Rise above her feet

A scoundrel
A cheat
A person
That one thought
Could never be

There he stands
So proud and mighty
Reaping the treasures
Of his hard efforts
And perseverance

Proving to those
That had once
Stepped over him
With condescending glares
And mocking challenges
His mettle and their wrongs

And showing the world
That anything
Is attainable
Given the right
And motivation

Telling the masses
That there is
No one innately better
Than another.

Telling them
That regardless of station
Status can be achieved
Its just that
Some must work harder
Than others

This poem was inspired by a writing prompt from the “Storyteller’s Vault” Publication and the Sk8er Boi Song by Avril Lavigne
