Times are a changin’

times-are-changin

I always find a song that correlates with my feelings.
With the changes in the American government and the loud protests, it’s only acceptable that Bob Dylan gets recognized ~

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And 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 prophesize with your pen
And 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
Will 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 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’

There is a window of opportunity that is allowing us to create change for a better life for ourselves. It’s really important that we take note of this as the whole world starts to shift.  To be honest, I am glad that Trump got into power; like anyone, I have my positive and negative views towards him. He has brought up a lot of emotions and feelings that the prior governments have suppressed (fear, anxiety, rage, etc.).

He ran for office in his own way and has succeeded. Whatever things he has done in the past (especially towards women) is in the past. However, I do not agree with him taking away reproductive measures for women; I truly hope that changes. We live in the now and we are preparing for the future.  I know for one thing that the culture has to be returned to the citizens of the states and that is his primary intention.

I hear different views all the time from different classes of people. What is important is how YOU feel and to not care about what other people think.  If you talk the talk, you better walk the walk. If you want to make a difference, then DO IT.

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. 

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
