New Beginnings

Give yourself
             the opportunity
                             to change
Look at it as practice
            on the way
                             to the stage
Why not take
           as much time
                             as you can
To perfect
            this visage
                            of a man
Give yourself
           the chance to
                           rearrange
True,
          you are the stranger
                            to yourself
Reassess
           the ways
                          you have not felt
Touch the ice
           and feel
                          the liquid
Melt
         against your
                    warm skin
Finding
         your beginnings
                     in its end
