Endings

This was a poem I felt inspired to write after I saw Kaytee’s poem. Yeah, I know, it has nothing to do with her poem, but you know, reading one poem made me want to write another. Anyway, here you go.

Every story has a start,

And every story has an end.

Like an arrow to pierce your heart,

And your imagination to bend,

Thus is a story and its end.

 

The beginning will pull you in,

And the end will draw you out for more.

The beginning may start with sin,

But the end has a job to restore.

 

When you read a tale of courage,

Or study a mystery to solve,

When the hero is discouraged,

The end will rise– reveal– and resolve.

 

The start may be a catchy line,

Or it may begin extremely slow.

But the end is what makes you sigh,

Or make you feel that lovely warm glow,

When Jacob repays what he owes.

 

The protagonist may be poor,

And at the end find that he is rich.

Or your lead might live in grandeur,

And end up with all his wealth filched

But in some way else be enriched.

 

The end is what brings that last tear,

And it is what grants that final smile.

It is what wipes away the sneer

From evil’s dreadful visage of guile.

 

The end will bring satisfaction,

Yet leave you a hungering for more.

It stops your heart’s racing action,

And proves the story was not a bore.

 

Every story has a start,

And every story has an end.

Like an arrow to pierce your heart,

And your imagination to bend,

Thus is a story and its end.

 

Also, guess how many lines? Well thirty-six of course!
