Welcome to January’s Write Here With Me link-up.
Here is my response to the prompt Fresh:
The New Year arrives at my doorstep in a fresh new suit, looking great
but carrying a case
heavy with the weight of expectations
And as soon as she arrives I take the case and hold on to it
And in lieu of a greeting I start shouting
About all the things I will do for this year
I am going to be better
I am going to be fitter and stronger and skinnier, you’ll see!
I am going to give this up and stop doing that and
I am going to do everything right
and in return
this year is going to be
the best ever
and then my arms start to ache
from holding onto that case.
So, instead, when the New Year comes strolling up my path
I will take the heavy case from her and put it aside.
I will welcome her with a smile.
Come in I will say
