I Change Not

As a leopard cannot change it’s spots
I cannot change, no matter what
I am that I am and was
only hoping could there
be bigger changes
we might see: two
in love turn
into
three.


Text: Linked to Jilly’s Casting Bricks October Collaboration Challenge.  This is a collaboration with Vivian Zems who provided the title and the first half of this nonet poem. Her part is in bold red.  A nonet poem has nine lines each line having one syllable less than the one above it with the first line having nine syllables.
