Another 'New' Year Approaches - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Another 'new' year approaches,
With repeated commitments...
Many will attempt in 2014 to keep.

Although in the doing one thing is kept certain,
The same excuses will be made to honor them.
And those who deceive will continue to pretend.

A ball will drop as promises are declared.
Cheers will be heard as fireworks flare.
With delusions unchanged to remain unaffected.

    As always Mr. Pertillar a cheerful look of cynical sagacity from the dagger of your keyboard. Im not going to ass kiss and say this is great because its damn good, to many damn fools make resolutions on the idea of changing their lives at a specific event, as if that's going to make things good. CHANGE YOURSELF! depending on an irrelevant point to do better for yourself is meaningless. The last stanza is Poignant for what will occur. Thank you for sharing. (Report)Reply
