THE NEW YEAR

New year,

same past.

-Steps closer,

still falling back.

Nothing changes

from a calendar's flip

or time's single tick.

No instant switch

that some expect,

no magic night

with a year predicted.

But a chance,

yes, a new chance;

to find a fresh start,

to make it anew.

Be proactive

and try,

not sit back

and fail.

A new year

offers a clean slate,

to make use of time

and achieve

your own change of mind.

The New Year

and maybe,

hopefully,

the new start.
