The First One

Starting something new is the easy part.

I can start something new whenever I want -

I can start a hundred stories, a hundred poems,

a new identity, a new beginning.

 

The first one, the first anything, is exciting.

It's so full of potential, it's future unknown.

All you have to do is to reach out and grab it.

All you have to do is start something new.

 

For some, the first step is always the hardest.

Sometimes I feel like it's the opposite.

I can take that first step.

I can grab hold of that glimmer of inspiration.

 

It's every step after that I have trouble with.

Where do I go?

What do I do?

Will this be a thing I don't finish, too?
