Never Fixed ©

Stella
Fife, Scotland
2005

To be able to change a way of believing
To see that time has taught other views
Even after years of standing true to opinions
That is a blessing indeed a salvation

Not to be fixed like a spoke in a bicycle
Going round in the same old way
Shows insight and clarity
Rather than dogma and dreary sameness

The piper is paid by whoever calls
And then must play to order
But we each own our ideals
And can keep for ourselves the best tune

Holidays when breakfast can become brunch
Or time is given freely to ploys of our choosing
Hint at having the key of the castle
The castle being internally kept

Choice and ability to walk up the other road
And stray from what is usual
Gives a glimpse of alternative mindsets
And with that a relaxing of rigid beliefs
