To Stop And To Begin Again - Poem by Ivanka Slavkovska

To stop and to begin again,
No longer to stretch and rest,
That`s life you must accept.

To begin once again, but to begin well,
no longer to make mistakes,
that`s life you must percept.

To go on the best way you can,
no longer to stop without reason,
That`s the way you must intercept.

    'that's life you must accept' that's what i'm strugling with at the moment. accepting things. This poem really reminds me that i am still young and am full of mistakes that i will have to begin again. i enjoyed this poem very much, it has hope that no matter what mistake you do you always have time to start again.
