Poem: Make my New Year's Resolution, for Christmas!

A Promise,

Is comfort to a Fool!


After all these

Years that

I have been

Making

New Years

Resolutions

To myself.

Still I can’t

remember

One year

that I Kept

Even one

Made it come

Through

I think that

it will be

Quite foolish

For me to

make another

Knowing,

That it will

most likely

Yield

the same

Results.

So if it's only

this Time

Yes!

This one time.

I should

find a way

to make it

work.

Because,

I am surely

not a politician

And for what

it's worth

I should not be

one to myself

I will be a fool

if it’s

UN kept.

Those promises

I keep on

making to me.

I am not a

bad Husband

For I do not

even have

a wife.

I am not some

Vampire

Feeding off

Someone’s blood

Each night.

I am the same

Human being

Who never ask

To be here

And never had

any say

In the decision.

But now that

I am here

I feel entitled

To my fair share

Michael is human

he got his

Lucky Dude

is human.

I know he care

Bob Marley

is human

only minimal

time

he spent here

Jesus

As he hung

on that Cross

For all our sins .

He showed

no fear

Those Romans

Who dare!

Father forgive them

For they know

not what they do

We all win

I read the verse

In the book of

Luke, I said

This year

I must speak

the Truth.

I will go on

to make

this Promise

to myself

A must to.


Make my

New Year Resolution

for Christmas.

Bless.

Thank you mljdgulley, quite sincere of you, to say it just as truthful as it really is , it takes special people to do this, you are the type of people that I believe in.

These seemingly simple things are actually quite difficult .

I had past folks, who were quite close to me that were possessed with lying,

"Think I will write about liars today." such an evil entity.

They have always said: once a man and twice a child, and many people believe that this is only a result through age and sickness .

Well it does have a lot to do with age , because that's from where the experience comes . But it's once getting to experience manhood/womanhood it should sound like:

Once you realize what's going on, you would always wish you can be a child a gain, to have a second crack at it, trying to do it better.

That's why we "MUST" teach the kids correct . Or if we had missed during our time.

We must teach our kids, to teach their kids correctly.

Happy holidays to you and yours.

Best of health to you all..

Bless.

New Year's resolutions! Mine have always been to pay more attention to what is going on around me and say thank you to God for such a blessed day. This is the only one I have ever been able to keep and even then the days get by and I forgot to take time to pay attention. Great hub

Hi Sky,

I loved this one and has to havean up up and away.

I made a great New Years resolution this year.

'To not make any resolution that I had no chance keeping'

Next year will be the same I think.

Thank you so much for this one.

Take care and enjoy your day.

Eddy.

Hi Sky,

Great poem. I make resolutions, but I am a compulsive person who usually keeps them. Try to make one to be good to yourself!

You are a wonderful person lyns , don't ask me how I know this. See no fear in me saying it.
