I've been experimenting with having a repeating verse recently! I don't intended for this to be a song...But I'd appreciate feedback on whether or not this repeating verse works or not

The idea for this was-what if I was scared of change on my first day?

so well I was waiting for lunch I wrote this...All feedback is always welcome! There are parts I'm not happy with, but I like the overall poem :)


It's not the change that frightens me
I think, I hope, I don't know why
But moving on is simple
Just leave all ties behind
In a brown paper box
Let them sink
Not float

They burn so fast
Each one unlike the last
You feel no pain
It's all a game
A marble
Rolling
Against harsh winds
For something it cannot gain

Through each pain
Each word
Failure is an option
One that I deny
Because I can forget
I can move on
I will change
Down to my soul
Let the baggage fall

They burn so fast
Each one unlike the last
You feel no pain
It's all a game
A marble
Rolling
Against harsh winds
For something it cannot gain

Flat on my face
I'll land again
If I must move on
No shame will come loose
No pride will Squeak
Better not to be apprehensive or proud or week
When faced against everything
Life can be bleak
With no childhood
No future To Claim
What will become of this simple game

They burn so fast
Each one unlike the last
You feel no pain
It's all a game
A marble
Rolling
Against harsh winds
For something it cannot gain

In a brown paper bag that I call my own
A fire ignites
It burns my memories
A core of thoughts
A world a unchanged dreams
Let go
Into Ashes
Like faded Memories

When all is lost
Except no broken
Let none remain
Never look back on those times
Long ago
When you were afraid
To let go and sell your soul
No pain means no gain
