 once upon a time

Beginning, as in any enterprise including living
We all have that moment of, beginning.
Where we go, what we do, leads to reality.
In the beginning it was me, her, the mother.
As time flows by we stray away, wherever.
Then how did we get here, somewhere in the middle.
Looking back at the beginning and forwards at an ending
where to from here, onwards, towards ending is inevitable.
Partnering, parenting we create another’s beginning.
This leads me to thinking, that ending is only beginning.
Then this enterprise of living has no literal ending.
We begin again to live, where we cannot say, but in itself
Ending and beginning are an adventure, which is worth living.
