Ode to New Year's Promises

Nearing the New Year
In a dead sprint
To cross the old threshold
In a month clear of tint.

The future seems fresh now
The past year has tired
I'm always so eager to
Escape from the mired.

January's a mirage
A facade to unknown
Another year soiled
By December overgrown.

Each New Year's whispers
Promises it can't keep
It just has to get you
To commit one more leap.

-Eve Featherstone
