Maybe one word, or maybe two,
Read these lines, find the clues.
Determination must first start,
Sometimes it leads to starting art.
No matter where it goes, one must first try,
Without the start of all effort, we can't fly.
The beginning of the beginning is the best,
To plan to acheive, or start another test.
Make sure when planning to end with thoughts,
Examine, begin and end to connect the dots.
So riddle it out, don't hold back.
Tell what I am, don't queue on a stack.

No queue of answers on Stack Exchange for this one: I got the answer as soon as I looked at it!

    $\begingroup$ Yeah, I'm going to have to mix things up a little more :-P. Nicely done. $\endgroup$ – Aggie Kidd Apr 9 '15 at 17:39
  • $\begingroup$ I didn't pick up on all the letter hints, but the last line and then re-reading from the top made me guess that you were describing a todo list $\endgroup$ – roo Apr 10 '15 at 0:35
