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.
