This New Year’s Day

This New Year’s Day
I take stock, get shocked
Broke promises, that’s okay
But today I reiterate decisions
Of yesterday

Will release all misery fireflies
From mind’s topped up jar
Let them glow in receding past
Disintegrate like fallen meteor
Embers dying out

Better still, let them lie fallow
Like piles of snow, not mown
Melting under sun’s warm touch
Evaporating tearfully in crannies
For good

People events robbed my past
Will bury today determinedly
Forswearing theft of my
Future in the making, by self
Molded, willfully

Today I will myself to be
Happy, happen what may
Nurture body n spirit resolutely
Make no bones about it, knowing
When to lead, when to follow
