New Beginnings

I told my self

not over indulge

I told my self

id take it easy,

if anything

ive ignored

what ive said

& jumped off into greasy..


so slippery

im trying

to gain hold,

if anything

ive gone back

to my days

of old,

which isn’t

any good

that’s why im trying

re gain and hold,

what I once


and had enough

interest not to let go..

so this being

a new week

that means

a new beginning,

im going/running

with the belief

that there is nothing

to stop me from winning,

if we encourage

one another

then we all

will be as strong & willing,

to not stop

not drop

what is a blessing

& soul appealing

  1. Each new week and day…provide an opportunity to alter the past and have a new beginning…if we elect to take the chance at a new start. 😀

  2. awesome…
    the image is dynamic and powerful.

    everything is indeed relevant, brilliant piece.

    linked you in…
    have fun visiting some other poets from my list.
    Thanks for the patience.

  3. Sounds like something I’ve heard from someone I know who makes the same mistake over and over. The realization and conviction in your last stanza is true – one can win. I like this poem, its flow, and its message.

  4. Every moment is a new one, where we can begin once again. A fresh start, renewed determination, and hope to hold onto. A wonderful poem, loved the message at the end.

  5. Good write. Very encouraging!
    Happy Rally

  6. Optimistic piece. Nice wording and flow. Fun!

  7. Every day a new beginning. The past is over and done. No longer exists.

    Well done. Like the organization and flow.

    Here from Rally. Hope you are enjoying your visits and visitors.
