End like the beginning

End like the beginning

Most times we remember the beginning at the end.
We spend most time at the beginning thinking about the end.
We want the beginning to look like our dream of the end
If we didn't get the end at the beginning
The apprehension of the end looking like the beginning
Fills our thinking at the beginning.
We often become aware of the steady motion of time
Close to the end of the beginning
Fear factor sets in
If the beginning of the end begins now
Beginning of failure might trigger
Often time, signals the end of self-esteem
The beginning of the journey to the end begins

When inevitable end finally comes,
It looks like the beginning.
That’s when the beginning of the thinking about the beginning begins.
Maybe if we had not spent the beginning thinking about the end
The end might not have looked like the beginning
Maybe if we had not spent the beginning of the beginning thinking about how to make
The beginning better than the beginning
Thinking about making the end come at the beginning
Maybe the end of the end would not have looked like the beginning……

Son
When your beginning begins
Begin the beginning with a mind-set
The beginning doesn’t begin looking like the end
The beginning begins looking just like the beginning
I am wise now
The beginning doesn’t determine the end

I love the last line of this poem "The beginning doesnt determine the end" this is so true. "We spend most time at the beginning thinking of the end" also true. We always want to picture the outcome before we're even close to it. Very good poem.

That is crazy, cool philosophy! Very intense read!

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
