the beginning of the end of the beginning by Vanessa Maki


the beginning of the end of the beginning 

 either way it will leave you / all those troublesome moments / no longer feel like an ocean / they are merely waves / that do knock you around / just like a beach ball / they are gone, gone, gone / across the beach of that glorious beginning / the start of the itch / that you couldn’t scratch / now you’ve grown into it / now that sensation / can breathe its last breath / so you can make room / for a more stable side to it all
