Resolutions

Winter’s long gambit,
we had played.

Spring’s laurels,
held dear.

Summer’s pride,
we did meet.

Autumns’ rouge,
gathered on our cheeks.

As we rejoiced,
in season’s splendor.

Journals,
adorn my
shelves.
Filled-
blank pages.
Filled-
times,
to come.

Journeys,
Great feats,
bitter-
defeats.
Loves,
lost?
I pray-
not.

Friends today,
children, grown.
head,
of
gray.

Life-
yet-
to
live.

The past,
a barrier,
overcoming,
sometimes,
overwhelming.

Sharing this,
idea.
Measure,
not,
of ourselves.
Walk not, through guilt-
the path,
to self-
doubt, pity-
absorption.

Reaction is, without
thought.
React,
not to the past,
act in the present.
Remember,
Move on-
no,
dwelling.

Speaking,
with ghosts, of our
past.
Words, unspoken-
Always wise,
clever-
apologetic-
after.

Spirits-
gone.
We must,
move-
forward.
Remembering.
Learning.
Growing-
wiser?
