Anew

Found this in my notes – I wrote it just before taking my new job.

Beginning
At face value, a word full of hope
Aspiration
Determination
Yet underneath
A beginning must always also
Be an end

Locked in constant cycle
The start and the finish
Both complimentary
Both opposite
One will always begin when the other leaves
Like day and night
Come now, see
How it feels to bask in the twilight

So melancholy here
Giving way to the new
Means making the choice to say goodbye
To the old
And making the choice means taking ownership
The change becomes you
Although you know not yet what it will bring

I sit here contemplative
Having made the choice,
But having not yet received the effects
I lie in twilight
Accepting uncertainty,
Presuming my fate.
