This New Year
This new year, I wish for peace.
For roots to take hold and grow into flowers,
For the sky to be sunny, and the waters clear for sailing.
I wish for blessing, for the seasons to come and go,
To accept what I cannot change and face what I fear with a smile.
I have high hopes for this new year,
For the chances, for the changes, for the hope it brings me,
Knowing that time moves like the waves do, a constant motion, rolling forward, forward, forward.
It is time to take the breath before the plunge.
Walk forward, and don’t look back.
