New year resolutions.


She drafted THE MOST perfect resolutions,
Learnt them up, and then re-learnt them.
She recited them to herself everyday from the 28th of December to the 31st,
And vowed to implement them all right from the January 1st.

Realistic resolutions as much as they were,
There still remained some element of fiction in them.
But ignoring the element, in fact calling it the fun part,
She adopted the resolutions now etched in her heart.

Week One, she followed them all to the letter,
Week two, ditto week one.
Week three, some falter seen and felt,
Week four, the lapse mended and dealt.

Next month, the resolutions seemed too much to keep,
So she mellowed them down a bit.
Month three, the resolutions began to lose their meaning,
Last December, when writing her resolutions, it seemed she was dreaming!

It was a plan she’d planned to plan the next year well,
A strategy so the ends of everything were ideal.
But now she’d forgotten everything about it,
And life seemed in an even better fit 😉

Come December 2013, she once again made a resolution,
This time, to not repeat the drill of 2012.
This year she celebrates spontaneity, mixed with emotions and decorated with smiles,
She now sees that life as it is, is best lived in the moment, forgetting the phases when it wasn’t SO BRIGHT.

Happy New Year!!

She couldn’t remember which day of the week it was,
But she remembered the month.
She couldn’t remember what time it was,
But she remembered how much had passed.
Her heart parched, she thought of her days bygone,
Her soul scratched, she thought of the time that was once her own.
With open eyes she saw the reel of her past,
When she closed her eyes all she saw was pitch dark.
My girl today was very very confused,
She wanted the clarity of a crystal.
She felt like a mouse trapped in a maze,
Running from one end to another but still life remained dismal.
She wanted answers from her life today,
For only answers could now provide her peace.
And answers were what could make her see a light,
Which alone could put her at EASE.
