Happy New Year!

New Year;
New resolutions-
To make this year the best one yet-
To gather future stars;
And have them all arrayed
About this moment we live in;
To squeeze the juice from life;
Or just relax
And let it all flow by,
Content to be a part of the greatest story ever told,
The only one we’ll ever know;
A universe unfolding like a flower
And then falling, curling
To feed another,
With the spending of its life’s blood
But we shall never see those days
For this time, and this only
Is our life

Let’s make this the best one yet!
