Poem: Fresh Start

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Fresh Start" is a poem that shows us how life can toss us a curve ball when we least expect it.

Just when we believe we have it all figured out, the bottom drops out.

We must start from the beginning once again.

Sometimes it helps to have a fresh start, but it can be frustrating.

"Fresh Start ~ Ryan Stevenson"


Fresh Start

His life is no bowl full of cherries,

with confusion weighing heavy on his mind

leaving him lost and alone.

Just as he figures out the illusion,

he steps on a trip wire

exploding it into a million pieces.

Life tumbles him backwards,

returning his footsteps to the very beginning,

forcing him to begin anew

with a fresh start.


It's never too late for a new beginning in your life.

— Joyce Meyers
