A New Year Poem
To find myself this coming year
I will absolve myself of fear.
Into the lake of hope I’ll plunge
And find myself amongst the grunge
Of past regrets and things gone by
My soul once freed, again shall fly.
And stepping out into the sun
I’ll see the way things can become.
With resolution as my friend
My failing heart will beat again.
And warmth and joy will overspill
Into the void I have to fill.
With all that’s right and sure and true
I’ll make my way into the new;
A little wiser from my woes
And stronger yet against my foes.
I seek no pity for the past,
For battles lost; for loves long fast.
I’ll feast again on life and love
With wisdom that will rise above
All challenges all obstacles,
My cup will once again be full.
This new years night I pledge me now
The coming year will meet this vow.
