A clean slate,
wiped clean by the ticking of the clock,
freedom to begin anew
to continue on the same path made harder by twisted resolutions
regrets of things undone, overdone and burnt
haunt this ghost of 2006
yet hints of happiness shine through,
for achievements I once thought impossible
Moments of sanity, new resolutions
all rare and fleeting
I can but hope to do what I had resolved to
and hope that I have the power to
fill the ghost of year future with more happiness and
lesser regerts of things and people undone , overdone or burnt from.
Happy New Year..very philosophical of me and unusual to write poetry, but may this year be everything you wished for!
