* subject to change

Well, you could have come across,
These three tentative words;
Perhaps, in fine print, on a poster;
Or, a billboard outside a theatre.
A disclaimer on a promotional mailer
A menu card, maybe a dangler.
For that matter,
you might have read it
in some terms and conditions.
All these times,
you might have said to yourself.
Indeed, it’s a chance that needs to be taken;
In a world where no guarantee is given.
But now, let’s look at the flipside.
How would it be
If the same could apply:
To anything and everything
That’s bringing you down in life?
It could be disappointments,
Failures, bitter instances,
which you thought
you never deserved.
Being broke, being jobless;
Being out of love:
Or, waiting to be freed
from this moment
which you feel
 is a Venus fly trap.
Well, this is when
you need to remind yourself;
These seasons
aren’t here to stay but pass.
They’re here to season you
For the good times that are to come.
Those three tentative words
Could be applied here as well.
NOW* is indeed *subject to change.
