Out of Darkness

We count down the moments
until the calendar tells us
It’s Time to Start Over!

All the sham drudgery and broken dreams
along with that which was to be desired
now so much ink on so many pages

resolutions made
this year we will be happier, healthier, braver, more kind
but how is it that

letting go of things we barely have

can leave us feeling so empty?

We know that the river is still there
waiting to be crossed

sometimes it’s just easier to see when we’re not
distracted by the light of day
