Coming to the End

Another year ends
Yet the emotions carry over
Joys and pains
Ignore the calendar
Only the callous and cruel
Can make a fresh start
By tossing all the past away
Humanity exists
With hearts that see an end
While remembering the beginning
All wish to carry only the good
While ejecting all the bad
Finding different paths
In the hopes of success
To drive away the hurt
As we come to the end

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    I think this is one of your best poems, Charles. It’s interesting how some of our best work is born from pain.


  2. I liked your point about only the callous can start over with an arbitrary line. I think the New Year is a matter of hope rather than a new beginning. Happy New Year, Charles,


  3. I wish you a very happy 2019! After all, it starts with a lunar eclipse on January 20th called “the super blood moon of the wolf,” so what can possibly go wrong? 😀


  4. Life is full of circumstances that make us have to “get up and try again.” I think a lot of people use New Years as a convenient way to kick themselves into gear.
