“ To Start Again ” ~ for joy or chagrin ~


If I were to start

Again from the crib,

Though risk to cart

What I have lived,

Yet offer attains

All I’d not found

A first time round,

Why not be willing

To start again…


Life gives promises

It rarely keeps,

Rife with hazards

From the first heat,

When we’d no say

Except to embrace

Whatever the spin,

Which did in time

Reveal its chagrin,

Layering the mind

Of abandon’s sin,

Till one so chances, 

To test joy’s worth   

By starting again!
