Changes

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

Whether you love her or not, Kim Kardashian is a pop culture icon. And with that level of fame comes lots and lots of opinions. Back in 2013, Kim made her debut at the Met Gala in a floral Givenchy dress. But what should have been a fun night was anything but. In a Vogue video, Kim reveals how her first Met Gala went down.

 

First off, Kim thought nobody wanted her at the event. “Kanye was performing, so I wasn’t actually invited,” she said. “I was just Kanye’s plus one, and that was okay with me because I never really dreamed I would be at the Met Ball. I know no one really probably wanted me there at the time.”

 

Her night ended in tears after she saw how people were reacting to her dress. She said, “On the car ride there I remember Kanye saying, ‘you look so beautiful, I’m so happy for you.’ And then I was crying the whole way home because I just couldn’t believe it. There were all these memes about me and this couch, and I think Robin Williams even tweeted it, said I looked like Mrs. Doubtfire. It was this whole thing and I just cried.”

 

Like a true queen, Kim looks back at her decision to wear that dress with absolutely no regrets.

“Now I love it,” she said. “I look back and I’m like, ‘Wow, they had the vision. This is sick.’ I just remember the Olsen twins came up to me and loved my outfit and my gloves, so none of the critics mattered because the Olsen twins approved.”
