i am trying to make myself be better.
a new person of sorts,
a more whole kind of person.
and i suppose the first step
is to let go of toxins,
breathe in, and then let it out,
exhale all of the venom on my tongue
that i have been holding onto for the year,
all of the angry words and bitter hurt
and all of the things i felt i could not feel,
and start over this time
with a breath of fresh air crisp from the snow.
i think this time, i will feel new with the year,
and for once, i think
i will be better.
