Taking realistic stock of my four walls
I soon realized urgent need to overhaul
Can no longer fresh new feelings maul
Have to shed all obsolete ideas sans gall

Decision taken climbed atop the hill
Took lay of land surrounding my mill
Landscaping renovation can and will
Require many tools and electric drill

Gathered a surgical scalpel of healthy new habits
A scraper to remove grime of silly superstitions
A paintbrush dipped in pleasant shades of hope
A lawnmower to prune all preconceived notions

Nails of fresh bright ideas, mats of bright sunshine
Dappled patches of winds of change n moonbeams
Coating old dreams in fresh colors of emancipation
Emerging from stale shadows to join new generation

Strengthening with vitamins foundation of bent spine
Sweeping cobwebs of regrets with joys of turpentine
Thus total overhaul accomplished in the nick of time
Ready to walk in tandem with new crop on family vine

A New Beginning achieved…
Heart filled with equal measures
Of trepidation and excitement flutters
Ready to give life a chance -once again, NOW!!!
Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.
 – Seneca, Roman philosopher, mid-1st century AD
The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you
 are not going to stay where you are. – author unknown

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone
Can  start today and make a new ending. – Maria Robinson

I know people who grow old and bitter. I want to keep making a fresh start.  I don’t want them to defeat me. That would be suicidal. – Robert Wyatt English, Musician
The birth of the new constitutes a crisis, and its mastery calls for a crude and  simple cast of mind – the mind of a fighter — in which the virtues of tribal  cohesion and fierceness and infantile  credulity and  malleability are paramount. Thus every new beginning recapitulates in some degree man’s first beginning. – Eric Hoffer 1902-1983, American Author,

Every moment is a new beginning
