2016 IS HERE!



This was written for Poets United's Poetry Pantry #284

New Year is here!
Welcome it without fear
Don't look back now
Look forward, don't be down
Life is supposed to awaken for you
Nice for you to be renewed

set new goals
be on the go, blossom, grow
forget any pains of 2015
time to carry on and achieve

New Year is here!
Don't waste your time on tears
Get up, get gone, be strong
Sing a new and happy song
Be all that you can be
Set yourself free

realize and achieve
be behind the wheel to possibility
forget the losses of the old year
don't waste time, make it clear

that 2016 is your zone
that 2016 is yours to own.

New Year is here!
Smile, be in style, my dear
Shine, don't be left behind, 
Fly, don't sit tight
Let 2016 define you, rebirth you
Go out and do what you got to do.

  9. Looking back has a tendency of keeping us from moving forward with purpose. So yes, ahead we go.
