A Long Journey

A long journey can offer much to start
Making it hard to see what's at finish
So many decisions, where to begin?
Will I be able to see it to end?
I'll only know if I choose to commence
Persevere the journey, so I conclude

What will I find when I choose to conclude?
I'm still doubtful if I should even start
I'm not always ready when I commence
Or if I will know how to reach finish
I cannot know what is to be the end
I can only choose my right to begin.

There's much to do when a journey begins
Not all ideas are plans to conclude
I simply do not want to know the end
For knowing may prevent me from the start
I will know when I get to the finish
In the present, I must simply commence

My own passions would prod me to commence
With a single step, the journey begins
No need to concentrate on the finish
There's very little to which I conclude
I need to launch spirit right from the start
Without it, the journey may, too soon, end

Try not to begin thinking of the end
Explore the various paths to commence
So much grows when you choose to make a start
Uncertainty rises, so you begin
Stay calm when not knowing how it concludes
You may not actually want to finish

Be proud when you've been there start to finish
A journey accomplished is not the end
Ponder all to decide how it concludes
Always remain open to recommence
Whenever it ends, it's time to begin,
Don't let adversity give you a start.

When you finish, turn around and commence.
Treat every end as a chance to begin.
At every start, remember, don't conclude.
