Poem: New Year ~ 2007
The last few hours of this year are swiftly passing on.
And I wonder what the next will bring my way.
Will my choices show improvement - as I go along?
Will I make amends…all misdeeds to repay?
Will the way be clear of pitfalls - in this New Year, ahead?
Only - ‘good intentions' - sometimes, don’t suffice.
But with determination and the will to do what’s right,
my simple pleasures won’t outweigh their price.
(Some things become so troubling…that seem to start out fine.)
A new year offers hope - a fresh beginning!
Bad choices made in this year, can now be left behind.
With burdens dropped, I could again be winning!
It’s a time for deep reflection, as these hours pass –
journeying onward, through this final night.
I’ll treasure all the good things, that this year has given,
and try to take what’s wrong and make it right.
