Beginnings are sneaky

You can avoid them

But the chaos finds ways

To wrap them up

Disguising them in nerves

And butterflies

And swimming thoughts

Lacing them in hopes

And icing them with dreams

But underneath everything

They hide nasty secrets

Covered so cleverly

In sparkles and glitter

Ribbons and bows

It is hard to find its existence

And by the time you do

You are so tangled in ribbon

You can’t escape

The secret is right there

You can avoid it for awhile

But it is right there waiting

Teeth bared, claws out

Waiting for its turn

To have its say

Inevitably you will find

The end
