The year has drifted us by,
Leaving behind the memories of yesterday.
Everything is in the past,
To be remembered before it is forgotten.

Everyone sees the New Year as a new start,
A clean slate,
A year to fix mistakes and
Make new mistakes

I see the New Year in a different way,
It is the beginning of everything,
A brand new start,
But the same old me.

Nothing ever changes,
Even if we like to pretend it does.
All we do is deceive ourselves,
To ignore the truth.

We are humans,
We are bound to repeat our mistakes,
All things end in the same way.
Nothing ever changes, even if we believe it does.
