It’s Time To… Start Over…

There are times in
your life
when you feel
the end

you know it’s
coming
you may want to
stop its progress
but
you can’t
’cause

it’s
too late

and then you
realize
you
didn’t know
you
didn’t
want
to…

any

way

There are times in
your life

when you feel
new beginnings
are ripe

a potential
possibility
an understanding
and you
want it

quite a lot.

There are times in
your life
when you just
want

to run

to hide
’cause betrayal
it just
hurts
too
goddamned much

Then there are times in your life
when you just want
to stay and curl up
enjoy the company

the new things
that you feel
like
you’d never thought again
here again
like a schoolgirl
staring
at that
boy again…

There are people
coming at you
in your life
who want
to hurt
and
to maim
and
to
cause you strife

In their
sadism
their wreck and ruin
causing distress
They leave
only
destruction

They need Power
and Control
and take it
any way
they can

Here we go again…

They just don’t
understand
when
you
say
No.
It’s…. NO.
Not again.
It’s finished.
End of refrain…

But

There are also people
who come
with hope
a
possibility
a chance look
they make it
so very worth
to try it
once again
one more time
here we go again…

They are people who hear your
“Not this… not this again..!
and
understand and
deliver
gentle perception
and
compassion
maybe even?
a little bliss

There are times in
your life
when you
wonder why
should I
try
this?

Would it be
right?
For you?
I dunno…

Couldn’t tell you.
Not for you
That wouldn’t feel right

I only know 

Me, oh…
and this
one 
other
little thing…

I’m at a time
in my life
where
I’m hearing
that rumble
no… the thunder
of
new beginnings
that spark
that ignition
the recognition
of
potential
or fruition?

I’m ready
to try again

I think
my only
question
is…?

What do you think?
