“A New Year Is coming”

The clock ticks forward
Second by second by second
The new year fast approaching,
The long handle has one tick left
One last second
And within that second time stands still.
Thoughts race through your head…
What will this new year bring?
Will I reach my long-time goal?
Will the days brighten?
Will work improve?
Will I finally publish that book?
Will a new adventure await?
Whatever your thoughts and hopes
A brand new year is being born
And with it the possibility
To dream
To change lives
To make a difference
To love,
The potential is endless.
And it’s up to you to make it happen.

Thank you for reading and sticking with me over the years! Happy New Year! Let’s do our best to make 2017 a good one. 🙂
