Can't Put the Pen Down…

The Three Hardest Things

Beginnings are hard.
No one cares about your plans,
begin, just begin.

Middles are harder.
Carry on carrying on
though no one watches.

Ends are hardest.
Knowing when to say ‘enough’,
rest, and start again.

The three hardest things,
beginning, middle, and end,
are all that matters.
