New Years Poem

I have been feeling in a rut --and kind of blue, but I made it my New Year's resolution to be more positive and more "out there".

This New Year

© Aleena
Even during the worst of times
When I feel the years go slipping by
Life seems rife with possibilities
When the New Year arrives.

Buoyed by hope at the new year coming
I feel renewed and want to start living.
This year I'll travel and see the sights
I'll be bold, I'll be courageous

I'll reach out and go beyond
I might even try being flirtatious!
I'll be a new fish in a brand new pond.
This new year I'll be brave and I'll be strong.

Even though time does fly
I won't let this year be wasted
I'll look forward to new adventures
And be open to opportunities I am graced with.

I'll learn and laugh and have good times
I won't dwell on years gone by
I'll start each new morning a brand new way
I'll pretend it is New Year's Day!
