The winds of change have blown
They enveloped my restless heart
They gently whispered in my ears
"It's time for a brand new start."
Reluctantly, I tried to listen
But in my comfort zone, I stayed
The winds of change blew harder
Stripping all my comforts away
I would try to choose a different path
But the winds of change would speak
"This is not the way that you should walk
Or the life you truly seek
There's more to life than seeking riches
It's your purpose you long to find
Destiny knocks at your door
Its path is the riskiest kind!
You've got one life so make it count
Don't make a choice that you'll regret
You're tempted to settle for Plan B
But there's been a dream you can't forget."
And just like that---a revelation!
The root source of my sorrow
Dreams that need fulfillment today
Were told to wait until tomorrow
The weight of this was oppressive
In my shame, I hung my head
My tears carried messages about
Who I've yearned to be instead
The winds of change addressed each tear
In my pain, they told me this
"Life is a journey where your role is unique
You must find and give away your gifts."
With newfound hope, I've made a vow
For my music to break the silence
To change the world one note at a time
And foster peace where there's violence
The winds have stilled and slowed their pace
Sometimes I'm filled with dismay
Somehow things fall into place
As if to help me along my way
In a world full of noise, I've learned it's hard to hear
But listen closely: The winds speak truth
This isn't a privilege to be earned
The winds that spoke to me, are speaking to you.
