The older you get
the harder it seems to begin again.
The cause for this could be in your head,
your bank account,
or in your old tired body’s lack of desire
to scrap everything and start over anew.
Until one day
there is little more beginning to be done
only ending -
ending after ending.
you should consider beginning now
right this moment
that beginning of yours
no matter how foreign
or how frightening it seems
no matter how unprepared you feel
no matter how uncertain you are
of the eventual outcome
and no matter what the others will say.
Because that ending will come
as it comes for us all.
But how it begins
and when it begins
is all up to you.
