New Beginnings


And so we begin the New Year
Precariously balanced on the taut line
Of our many resolutions and goals
Like a high wire artist ready to perform
But afraid of falling while

The critic within whispers
“You can’t do it”, but we persist
Holding tightly to the balancing rod
And begin the journey to improvement

There will be times we must stop
To regain our balance and courage
Then remember the goal and continue
We can do I if we really want to

You can't tell l stayed up till after midnight last night, can you? There's a line that needs help: "We can do I if we really want to"...should read "We can do IT if we really want to." (Lack of sleep can stop us from doing anything better.)
