Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Many hopes still unfulfilled
Despite how strongly they were willed
But when reflecting on what’s been
Recall the details of each scene

Like Sherlock, you may find what’s real
The things which matter in each deal
For passing quickly are our lives
And onward our intention drives

So what is possible from this place?
Choose wisely, all are in the race
And wishes may not be enough
Prepare them well, life can be tough

Dream on, then, and with equal measure
To sacrifice and things of pleasure
The resolutions must be kept
Or once again those tears are wept

So positive thinking, will of steel
Move with thought, and don’t just feel
Another chance to break through fear
To all, my friends, a Happy New Year!
