Headstall's Reflections - 40. Chapter 40 Happy New Year

And so it begins... here's to a better 2017... this was posted yesterday in 'Live-Poets Society'

Headstall’s Reflections

 

 

Chapter 40 Happy New Year

 

 

It’s only a day, but then it’s not

It puts upon us a pressure fraught

With expectations to improve our plight

As if we are no longer bathed in light

 

Resolutions begin a chance to fail

Not a concern when first we hail

But, later when the morning rears

Our stomach sinks as our mind clears

 

What the hell were we all thinking?

After our night of raucous drinking

I don’t need to change one thing

What you see in me is what I bring

 

Don’t make promises you can’t keep

Or drink enough to make you weep

Just be happy with who you are

And confine your wishes to a star

Cheers!

To be honest, I was hoping for one of your reflections. They're a great way to start the year.

 

Be happy with who you are. I love it!!!

 

Thanks for sharing, Gary. Happy New Year.

"Resolutions begin a chance to fail"... Great line and so very true. Being happy with who you are is the key to happiness - especially on New Year's Day. Setting yourself up for disappointment is not the way to go.

 

Thanks for the poem and Happy New Year, Gary. - Mac

I gave up on resolutions long ago,
Too much implied woe...
If you didn't like me when we met,
That's okay--what you see is what you get.
:D:hug:

That's how I feel too, buddy. New Years is a time to reflect, sure, but any changes you want to make shouldn't hinge on a date, or as a declaration... and I like what I see... you're awesome :hug:

I completely agree. I hate New Years resolutions. They are generally unrealistic, drunken promises that set you up for failure. Why do we do that to ourselves? I gave up on resolutions a long time ago. if it means that much to me, than its not something I have to wait until January 1st to change.

 

As always, you know how to strike a chord. :hug:
