My Resolution

Written by: Judith Angell Meyer

Is to descend the stair
looking for where my soul
hides those bits I hate in myself;
The darkness of control, selfishness,
procrastination, laziness --

Put back in their place,
I ascend again to expand
my heart songs;
generosity, creative vision,
able to move freely among
my thoughts letting the beauty
around me tease my soul into a smile.
