Happy New Year 2017

Another new year it is, but not like any before.

Lots of promises, this one brings with it,

Especially, the one for my life to benefit.

I made peace with 2016 despite our differences.

We shouted at each other; I, for its inadequacies,

And It, for my unrealistic fantasies.

After a heated argument on the 31st of December,

We hugged it out, like friends forever,

And parted ways as  ‘twas time for a changeover.

A fresh day, a fresh start, a fresh year and a fresh self.

I welcomed my new friend, 2017 was its name,

With open arms, I hugged it to start the new game.

I know there will be ups and downs, this year too.

But the real adventure is yet to begin,

I have to find all the courage and determination within.

No matter the challenges and the hurdles I’m faced with.

2017 and I are going to walk it together,

To add to my cap, another feather.

I hope to conquer my fears and insecurities.

To soar the insurmountable height,

And among the many stars, shine like the moonlight.

My life has just begun, I believe.

The unfathomable depth, I want to dive into,

And explore the new regions, have my final breakthrough.

I am ready and yet I am nervous.

Let’s see what this year has in store for me,

If at all anything, no regrets there should be.
