Hour 1: Sonnet – Begin at the End

Sonnet – Begin at the End

The end is just the start of something new.

From endings we may find the strength to borrow

as we face a never ending sorrow

we begin again; this is always true.


From my perspective, only my own view

I have faced the choice of no tomorrow

and tried again resting on no laurels

the mysteries of life leave little clues.


Prepare to begin and look to the end

not as a goal but as part of the game.

Surround yourself with the love of your friends

and watch them as they in turn do the same.


By all means you should always try to win;

just think of the end, before you begin.
