Determined to go to bed sooner
Enabling a more refreshing start to the week
Fumbling through the stuff that had to be done
Everything taking so much more time to do
And some of it didn’t work out at all
Then the clock read 2 a.m. and he had to admit…
Nothing like the present to start something new
Of course you might fail
When that happens, learn from it and try something again. Never a better time than…
Looking at everything to do in front of me,
It gets overwhelming and I begin to sweat.
So how do I attack such a formidable task
The only thing I can think of is start a new …
Yearning to wear soft cashmere sweaters
Asking others to make them for me seems silly since I could make one
Reaching for my knitting needles I start my first stitch
Now after five hours, and not getting past stitch three, I pick up the phone and call…
Didn’t read the fine print of the contract
Of course that’s how a lot of these stories start
Catch 22’s galore in the legalese that no one can decipher
Unless you are a lawyer, and even then you have to be speak a dialect of Parseltongue
Making the rest of the tale about maneuvering out of the inevitable
Enabling our hero to have the last laugh
Now only if that worked in real life
Then I would be so done with these student loans
Making out under the silvery light
Oblivious to the changes I start to feel
Only she isn’t oblivious and starts to scream
Nobody said the dating life of a werewolf was easy
The start to an ordeal is never easy
Reaching down deep to find the follow through can be painful
It can make you want to turn back, give up, curl up in a ball
And yet, there is so much awaiting you on the other end of it all
Look, you know it won’t be easy but…
Success is usually worth the price of admission
A cinquain is a five line poem that has the following form:
2 syllables, 4 syllables, 6 syllables, 8 syllables, 2 syllables
The author is allowed to add or subtract 1 syllable from the count for each line. I decided for my first one I would follow the purest form of a cinquain.
It’s just a start
Waiting for creation
So when you get to the ending
Finding all the things that are wrong can be depressing
It can make you want to just throw everything out and get something new
X that idea out, sit down with your list, start at the top and rebuild it and make it yours
Perhaps he is just sleeping.
And that’s the excuse you want to go with?
Really, he could be just catching some shut-eye.
Realize that I have watched the Monty Python skit like a billion times.
Oh, then yeah, he’s dead
That was anticlimactic.
So do you want to start it from the top again?
