The Beginning of the Story

Why is it so easy to start a story
While ending it so difficult and desultory?
A newborn story is almost like a child
with a free will and a strong mind

the first brush mark on a blank canvas
binds you to a commitment; alas
The next stroke needs a relationship
to the first you made in your painterly trip

why does one run out of options
as one progresses with creative inventions?
every beginning inevitably demanding
a fitting and appropriate ending

it is not as if you have this constraint
only when you pen a story or paint
even your life is full of events
that tie up beginnings with the ends

the first moments of a romantic fling
determines whether it will fly or sink
the first step that starts you on a journey
often determines where it will end

if one wants to be purely philosophical
and think on a scale truly cosmical
consider how the first moment of creation
started the cosmos on a path to annihilation
