New Year's Resolution
And the weight of all your burdens, cannot be made to disappear,
Reflect on what you have done, during each of the four seasons,
And ask yourself if what you did, was done for the right reasons.
You cannot change a word you said, or something you have wrought,
Nor can you hide from your mistakes, and forgiveness cannot be bought,
The most you can do is forgive yourself, and plan to make amends,
Start with those who are the closest, such as family, and your friends.
The midnight hour has arrived, it is time to call the Gods of old,
Speak to Them with all honesty, let your human failings be told,
Take a blood oath before the Gods, and pledge to change your ways,
Promise to heal the pain you have caused, over all the new year's days.
