This year I want to grow up and act my age,

You’d think I had accomplished that at this stage,

It required responsibility to make the right choices,

But I listened instead to my own inner voices,

I wanted to get older but I’ve changed my mind,

All the things I wanted I’ve already left behind,

Have a family, have a job, be productive for awhile,

Been there, done that, I’ve traveled those roads in style,

Perhaps this is the year I finally will get a new start,

Lessons at Hard Knocks School didn’t make me smart,

I know, I’ll loosen up, and try not to be so tense,

Before, I tried too much, too soon; I had little common sense,

My money will grow by leaps and bounds if I put some away,

But it’ll have to wait for tomorrow, for there’s a sale today,

Be generous to a fault this year, give to those in need,

But without discipline to pay my debts, little can I heed,

Work hard and do my best, a goal for the coming year,

Instead I think it’s time to reflect, and face unknown fears,

I want to be kind and passionate, loving life without regard,

Easier said than done, my friends, life is pushing hard,

Live life with gusto, I don’t want to be tied to fear,

I’ll try to make every second count, just to survive this year.

    • If I only had the wisdom now that I wanted back then! Hope the year is going well for you. Happy day 2!

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    • It’s getting harder to relate to the superficial. Perhaps my thinking has had a chance to ripen. Or perhaps learning how to be patient by working with bees helped. Every mistake carried stingers. Thank you for your posts and words of wisdom. May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!
