A New Start - Poem by Nellie Isabelle Steward Cooper

If everything is over
It only means
This is your new start!

Somewhere over the next hill
bend in the road, or right here
where your feet have stopped

But for a brief respite
you couldn't go any further

Time now for a few breaths
as you couldn't
take them then

Now take ten
and begin again

From a dismal nowhere
you may go anywhere

All directions
up, down, across, round and round

No impediments nor restrictions are here
starting from now
is the most important thing...
enjoy, love, have fun...

A hand up I'll be glad to give you
we'll share together our rising sun

Topic(s) of this poem: lyrical, riddle
