New year`s eve is full of activities.
Everybody praying for a year devoid of negativities,
With strong determinations,zeal and inspiration;

You can surmount your present problems with new aspiration,
Even if some goals were not achieved the last time,
Are we not alive to witness pleasant events in our prime?
Resolutions made before and new ones proposed;all just to make impact,
`Some lack discipline and  attitude to refuse this old dance.

Everyone praying or hoping to see the next day which is by chance,
Very few realize that a minute to the hour,death can still act.
Every minute brings anxiety which is neither certain nor reassuring.

    I like it because it doesn't feel contrived like so many other Acoustic poems. Well done!
