Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

All Good Things

If all good things must end
then how to explain us?

I used to be afraid
to feel too good
Kept myself tethered
so the inevitable fall 
wouldn't hit too hard

I let my joy fly 
like a newly fledged bird
and I need not grieve
its ending
for each ending creates 
for the beginning 
of something even

smiles...i like how you turn that saying on its head...and i know a few that kept them selves in check not to get hurt in the fall but how freeing just to let yourself go to joy...

I know and believe it ~ I like the joy of the newly fledged bird ~ Nice reflections ~

There is a Khalil Gibran quote for this 'Every end is a new beg ginning' - you hit the ail on the head!
