Starting Over

Good things never last
Even great things
Crumble and fall
But every ending is
A new beginning
Before you is a fresh canvass
With a million possibilities
So why leave it blank?
Splatter freely and joyfully
Don’t waste a single color
Or an inch of space
Let it be a beautiful mess
Because what else is life
But a collage of moments
Big and small
Colors, memories, rather
That run together
Telling a story
Creating a masterpiece
Precious,
Unique,
Unpredictable
Ever-changing from
Dark to light
Jagged to flowing
Precise strokes giving way
To wild, carefree loops
And you are the painter
So make it happen
If you dream it, do it
Don’t look back
Don’t look ahead
Just look around you
And start drawing.
