The New Year

I am the New Year.

I am an unspoiled page in your book of time

I am your next chance at the art of living

I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned

about life during the last twelve months

All that you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me

waiting for you to search it, but with more determination

All that good that you tried and didn’t achieve

Is mine to grant you with fewer conflicting desires

All that you dreamed, but did not dare do

All that you hoped, but did no will

All the faith that you claimed, but did not have

These slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by

the touch of a strong purpose

I am your opportunity to renew your allegiance to

Him who said, “Behold I make all things new”.
