New Year Resolutions

New Year resolutions

They are back. Yesteryears’  resolutions
That  evaporated ere execution.
My first one this time around
Is that resolves shouldn’t get drowned
Or  suffer the slightest diminution.

This one sure was fairly easy enough
But the do’s and don’ts looming large look tough
It’s better for me to wait
Than decide and then debate
Those tricky  easier-said-than-done-stuff. 

Sorry, I have no habits to kick
Though there are a good many for the pick
I’ve no weight to lose or gain
Or fitness goals that are  pain
Save a crick in neck to get rid of quick  .

    funny! [re: G-d or the L-rd, I don't know if it would matter which letter got left out I'd have to ask an Orthodox Jewish rabbi? It is done so the name of god is not spoken or writen..Happy New Year] Light & Love

    Those resolutions seem to be made to be broken because temptation is always beckoning. My neck problems respond to magnetic therapy so let me know if you are interested. Happy new year Jag, hope your plans all come to pass my friend! :) Love, Lizzie
