New Year Goals

New Year Goals

I made some plans in 2014
to which my heart aspired
and here it is 
the end of December
and I’ve not met the goals desired

A bit frustrated and a little mad
at myself… for I’m to blame
for making resolutions 
that were unattainable…
this new year I’ll not do the same

The areas in life I’ll choose to improve 
will start off with a few
As I cross one off, 
the list I make, I’ll add another
to take up the room

When next December rolls around
my hope is to report some gain
and my wish for you
is that you can report
that you have done the same

I must try...does anyone really, ever meet their goals? Halfway through the year, I find myself changing them. Happy new year.

It seems the year goes by so quick. I've got no time to make things stick. I'll not start now what I have never. It takes all I've got just trying to be clever. So in the end that's what you'll find. A filled up page and an empty mind. Peace. :)
