BEGINNING TO AN END    

 I had walked the streets in a certain town,    

 For so many years, familiar faces and sounds.    

 Everything I did, all that I knew very comfortable, 

 It was my home but now it has gone and ended indeed.

 Once again in life this is my new beginning, strange 
 It is,

 I feel lost, a strange place with faces unknown 
 To me.

 Street names are just that, only names but not 

 Strangers are only people who have not yet become 

 My new home has neighbors who have not yet become 

 Street names I will memorize so I will not get lost 
 And all alone.

 I like my new yard, yesterday has made many a change,

 I now have a spot where I can be alone, I hide from 
 The insane.

 There is life that traveled with me, some that I have 
 Left behind,

 I swim in a pool, this is my new day, I heard some new 
 Voices, Walk a new way.

 I'm an inch away from heaven, a lifetime from where 
 I belong,

 I can hear my father calling me, In my head there is 
 Always a song.

 Beginning to an end, the world is for us not to really 

 I am here where I am, this is my new beginning,
 I am where I stand.
                                     Keith Garrett

  1. it usually, takes, us, a very long time, to adjust, to a brand new place that we move to, to reattach ourselves, to that, brand new place called home, because, attachments are, usually, hard to establish but too easily, broken!
