A Poem: From the beginning to the end

I expected more from this short expanse of time

Time seemed liked all I had once to fill this space

Space that I had reserved for endeavors of the heart

Heart that I offered too many only accepted by some

Some days are hard, while others seem to be a waste

Waste of effort, waste of caring, waste of being awake

Awake is where I hope to be, a few short bursts of clarity

Clarity for the moment so that I can believe what’s ahead

Ahead of the beginning, and through the light to the end

An original composition by the author of Ends and Beginnings

About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.
