The madness is almost over,
just a few days remain;
then we all can start anew,
and play again, the same refrain.
New Year's resolutions,
are gone in a few weeks;
will this be the year,
that new roads we will seek?
Stay on the path forever,
do not waver to one side;
we must face the truth before us,
and longer can we hide.
Face the facts before us,
grab the truth and hold;
forget the many lies,
that since youth, we have been told.
Rise above the mundane life,
that we now are leading;
stop the flowing wounds,
cauterize the bleeding.
Shake the old, begin the new,
become the one you want to be;
bury the old self in the past,
the one that none need see.
