Everyone Begins

you know it’s true
the question is when

some begin every day
each day is a new tablet

on which life is carved
or tapped out digitally

some began long ago
and just carry on

keeping calm is optional
though preferable

some haven’t begun yet
but they will

some have begun already
but have questioned

that previous beginning
and are thinking

of starting over
a franchise reboot

some begin and stop
over and over again

questioning too much
trusting not enough

who is now the question
who are you beginning to be
