Bedside or roadside, life ebbs then subsides
Bleeding from inside, drivers all just pass by

Yesterday or previous, part of some great ‘what was’
Vultures circle up above, ashes to ashes then dust

Newborn to carrion, I mourn while I tarry some
While life ends and new pretends, I will carry on.

stop. now, start.

Sometimes, before you can START something, you have to STOP something else first, that might otherwise hinder you. This is the season where many people use the newness of the year to make promises, resolutions, commitments and good habits.
