Everything changes, and changes for the better!

For no reason at all, I was reminded of this poem by Bertolt Brecht after so many years.

 

Everything changes.

You can make a fresh start with your final breath.

But what has happened has happened.

And the water you once poured into the wine cannot be

Drained off again, but everything changes.

You can make a fresh start with your final breath.

 

I didn’t understand this wonderful poem when I first read it; perhaps I still haven’t fully. I turned it round and round as if it was a beautiful locked box, left it lying on the shelf a while, I went back to examine it after a while. Then one day when I was old enough, brave enough to let go of the structure, it came through. However, I would rather say “Everything changes, and changes for the better”.

Once I thought that Love is an impossible thing for me but today, I have found my true love in my wife, Shraddha Nitya Prakash. My Life at present is perfectly analogous to this piece of work. It’s a movement towards perfection.

I would like to quote Albert Einstein’s very crisp words of wisdom

“He, who moves not forward, goes backward”

Don’t look back because everything will change and it will always change for something better.
