Well, here we are at the beginning of a brand new year at the beginning of a brand new decade. For January 2010, write a poem on the theme of beginnings.

NEW BEGINNINGS OUT OF SUPPOSED ENDINGS?!


Am I looking for
new beginnings or
supposed endimgs?
Happy endings
or happy NOWS?
I'm no longer expecting
happy endings.
I don't believe anymore that
“Happy endings are just stories
that haven’t finished yet." But
I have expected,
anticipated, and demanded
my unhappy, unforeseen
relocation to a new way of life
to have a happy ending--but
it hasn't ended yet!
The car has stopped, the shoes
are found, the cats are even trained--
but we didn't move here for anything to END,
but for us to STAY, happy!
Our story HERE hasn't finished; I really don't
WANT a happy ending. I want a happy LIFE!
This story may finish happy;
we won't know 'til it's over.
Meanwhile, I
choose happy.NOWS
to view this lovingly
as a new beginning,
not a supposed
ending!
