The Times They Are a-Changin’

Come gather ’round people wherever you roam
Admit that the waters around you have grown
And accept it that soon you’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics who prophetize with your pen
Keep your eyes wide, the chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon for the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’
For the loser now might be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway, don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside and it’s ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
And don’t criticize what you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’

The line, it is drawn, and the curse, it is cast
The slow one now will later be fast
As the present now will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin’
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’

~ Bob Dylan

The times have always been a-changin’ and often they can be very confusing and trying. The important thing to remember is to always keep your integrity and belief in who you are. Learn to balance yourself and flow through the change instead of being bitter or fearful.

Look at life and see its magical beauty, and always keep your curiosity thriving. Embrace nature, protecting her always and she will in turn, caress you with kindness. And don’t forget to pay all good deeds forward.

With all of this intact, you will ride to the crest of change feeling only joy and complete peace because the Universe has smiled, and you will never feel lost again.
