#WednesdayVerses : My New Year Resolutions
At midnight, when the clock struck,
Announcing another year,
It wished myself good luck,
To make my resolutions without any fear!
To write more and read even more,
To exercise and get fit,
To go to places I’ve never been before,
These are quite ambitious, I admit!
Its been ten days since,
Write and read, I did.
But I now wince,
For to exercise, goodbye I bid!
As I list down the places I want to go,
I find a list of the year before.
A list of places, I never did go,
With anguish, all the lists I tore.
I decided never to make a resolution again,
I’d just do things better than before.
Resolutions to me seem like a pain,
I’ll take the year as it comes, with everything that’s in store!
As part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Vinay and I have started this weekly prompt which we’ve decided to call as Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. We are happy to have you rhyme with us. Welcome!
Prompt #1 is Resolutions in a verse.
