#WEPFF December Challenge: With Every End There Is A New Beginning


Below is my poem for #WEPFF December Challenge- The End is the Beginning





The End…

for all things, there is a season

this we’ve been taught

though we rarely dwell on

until it’s standing

dauntingly, devastatingly

before us



To let go…

the hardest of all to do

of those we love, cherish

for the heart, the flesh,

pain is undeniably real

as the knife




to the horizon,

the sky ablaze with vibrant morn colors

and remember, that for every night

there is a dawn,

and a time for new beginning



All that’s required of us

is not giving up

for the night will end

as any season

and with a new day,

healing and hope

  1. Hello Carrie!
    Thanks so much for posting your poem to the WEP challenge! So fitting for the prompt and for this time of year. I love the shape of it and the sentiments well expressed.
    ‘… for every night/there is a dawn,/and a time for new beginning…’
    Words of hope for those going through a night. There is always a dawn, even though it can be slow rising.

    Thank you for participating in WEP this December. It is lovely to have you. We love our poets. I hope to see more of you in 2018!

    Happy holidays!

  2. Thank you for a beautiful poem of hope and perseverance. We often forget that the ending of something is the beginning of something new. We yearn for newness and change but again we forget that change means the death of something so that something new can arise.
    I love your poem. It speaks of the untold truths that we forget and should remember.
    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a successful crossover into 2018.
    Shalom aleichem,
    Pat Garcia
