Declare your New Year’s Resolution,
The blank page before me, demands a solution
But this homework assignment,  seemed to make no sense

A single goal, to keep in mind
Some bad habit, next year to leave behind
Why was it these thoughts, seemed to raise all my defense

Was it because, I now feel quite good
I’ve come as far, as I thought I could
I do not dwell on the past, I prefer the present tense

I do not like, to think of the stuff
That made my childhood, seem so rough
To the memory of my innocence, lost at his expense

If it’s a goal you want, then one I will give
I will strive to go on, and continue to live
Thru what is walled away in yesterday, instead I hope for  what comes hence
