This Year - Poem by Susan Lacovara

This year...
I will love a little harder
Sleep a little longer
Listen a little better

This year...
I shall be kinder to strangers
Practice tolerance
Be humble and share

This year...
I'll change outdated outlooks
Rearrange unrealized visions
Toss out missed opportunities

This year...
I shall spend less money
While spending more well spent time
I will save riches of the soul

This year...
I'll keep making promises
And keep the promises I make
And promise to make a difference, (no matter how small)

This year...
I will watch more sunsets
Wake up early to catch the sunrise
And wish in every shooting star

This year...
I'll strive for new knowledge
Reflect on wisdom
Seek new ways to apply life's lessons...
