Thanks to MindLoveMisery’s Menagerieor hosting last week’s Tale Weaver’s prompt on a story of keeping/making resolutions in the New Year.
It’s difficult, keeping going in —
The face of rejection given.
I’ve learnt be fortified; than —
My cave won’t fall in strengthened;
I’ve succeeded at some tries, failed at many others,found,
Resolution; one must, keep pushing all boundaries.
So, what do we resolve, anything new?
We continually have goals in view.
Hoping we’ll achieve something great.
Or make it through each day, not wait —
Wondering if the grass is greener, if inspiration,
Can take flight, provide meaning, when we require.
Do we lose weight, eat less sugar?
Walk more, live our lives with vigor?
Do we spend time with loved ones,
Knowing we’re here, short while for some.
Do we travel somewhere far away or give home —
To pets from the shelter? Strangers who are unknown?
We can resolve, try much harder,
Do better, be specific, guard —
Ourselves, take baby steps to —
Goals we want achieved through,
A change in habit, will it happen or will we —
As every year, change only when life forces free —
What we truly need to change and be,
Beyond ourselves, have self-belief,
We will actually take a step, glean —
Some knowledge from the year, lean —
Far from our own circles to celestial dreamscapes,
It’s difficult to be grounded; worse to not create.
