Poetry Day 31

Day 31: Endings- New Beginnings

Is it a beginning or an ending?
Whatever it is:
Hold On 
If things in life never ended,
then we wouldn't have things that would begin.
We would not have life,
We would not have death,
We would not have love and,
We would not have hate.
Everyday something begins and it comes to an end,
from the morning sunrise, to the day itself.
Every day is a new beginning and an ending but 
In between the new beginnings and endings
there is a waiting game.
Is what I am looking at the beginning of my future 
or is it the beginning of end?
With no endings, no new beginnings can happen,
otherwise you wouldn't have found me or 
I wouldn't have found you.
Thoughts that come out of nowhere
to finishing one another's thoughts
even though we are miles apart.
You are by the Pacific
and miles and miles of land keep us apart.
The deepest wounds of loneliness surround my heart. 
I wait to talk to you,
I wait to see your face,
I wait to hear your voice,
as if you are a part of me.
But for now, I have to wait,
I have to wait to see if this is our beginning or if it's the end.
I have to hold on, because I don't know what will happen next.


Thank you to those of you have stopped by my blog this past month! I greatly appreciated being able to see other amazing writing pieces! I hope you will continue to follow my blog even though it's the end of OctPoWriMo! A fabulous month indeed!

  1. I love this, how you set it up with the existential and then put us in your longing. Thank you.

  2. They say patience is a virtue, and that's no truer than regarding love. :)

  3. " If things in life never ended,
    then we wouldn't have things that would begin."

    So true. And what is difficult or even horrible leads us to something wonderful. Hard to realize when the bad stuff is happening.

    Thanks for your lovely poem. xoA
