THE NEW BEGINNING (A Poem by Adeosun Oluwatunmise)


Starting anew,
Is not as easy as it sounds.
Trying to stand tall,
Amidst failures and regrets.
Covered in battle scars,
Wounded but not defeated.

Be calm, my frail heart.
I’ll pick up your pieces myself.
This time will be better.
And if it isn’t,
We’ll fight again,
At every new beginning.

And through patience,
We’ll find it.
The new beginning;
Our new beginning.
