Resolutions

     Written last year at this time and edited this year and most likely again next year… God willing!  Hmm, so let’s see how I did…  Oh, ah, never mind, but I resolve to do better next year!

     Happy New Year,

Jake.

Resolutions

    In the New Year:

                                      I will;

                                                  Love a little more,

                                                  yell a little less

                                                  be a part of the clean-up,

                                                  and be no part of the mess.

                                                  And do something different,

                                                  like giving my tongue a rest.

 *

                                   I won’t;

                                                 Allow myself to worry,

                                                  add to someone’s stress,

                                                  or forget to smell the roses,

                                                  and do anything, but my best.

                                                  And again, appear in public,

                                                  unless, I’m fully dressed.
