Where To Begin Again?


Where to begin again?
And how to begin again?
When others and the odds say
I will never be able to begin again-

How? When there seems no way
How? When within me there is no sign
How? When Weakness is more with me than before
How? I don’t know-

Against then the odds
And against the strength I have
In some way I do not understand
By the help of God perhaps-

I must go into what I do not know
And must try to create again-

Will I?
Can I?

I don’t know

These words are not the new beginning
But only a small poem of a kind
I have written many times before-

I have no evidence
I am not sure
I will try to begin again
Will I?
I don’t know.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
