I like beginnings

20 Oct

I like beginnings far more

than I do endings

Beginnings are full of promise

and sometimes I worry I may be late

for the beginning

and find myself at the end

instead

Beginnings cannot be repeated

and I think we all know how tedious it is

when we try to begin again and again

I like beginnings because

all is equal and clean and pure

nobody gets to brag

nobody gets to feel sorry for themselves

for we have just begun

we have made our move

and the next one won’t be quite as much fun

as the last one

as the entropy sets in

and the world winds down

I sure do hate endings

don’t you?
