for how could I be the one to say

enough! stop! over!

wouldn’t that be believing in

death? quitting? failure?

now I know that

allowing and embracing the end

leads inexorably to the beginning

now move on

now create anew

now be something else

yet all and both

are born again

in the fullness of time

for my own joy and goodness
