There Comes A Time…

There comes a time when you have to look past what used to be
a time to focus on what needs to be
There comes a time when you have to choose
between turning the page and closing the book
There comes a time when you have to let go
of that good feeling that keeps you in the past
a time to work through your issues
to get the awesome moments that awaits

There comes a time in your life
when you have to grow up not just grow old
There comes a time when you have to let go
of some people, not for hate’s sake but for the sake of inner peace…

When the time comes, do not hesitate to go with it
for it is that time when things are about to change for the better,
The time when life wants to take you to a higher level of learning
The time for you to begin a new phase of your journey
The time for you to be who you were meant to be.

    From the casual reader’s perspective,some of the lines are way too looooong giving the impression of prose and not poetry. This impression is reinforced by repeated use of ” and “. A little judicious editing would,I am sure make this poem more approachable.
