Old Soon Be New...

by Phoebe

I’m taking account of this year almost gone
Recalling the details of each pro and con
And what I conclude as this year’s put to rest
As years come and go; it’s not one of my best

There’s been some experiences borderline bad
And others that can only be described as sad
The passing away of close family and friends
Inevitable sure, but there's pain when it ends.

Some misguided choices gave bother a bit
By trying to help others out of the shit
It has been a long year for working as well
And winter especially, the cold gave me hell

But life with its mystery always finds a way
To balance the books at the end of the day
There’ll always be challenges we each must face
Turned into experiences time can’t erase

Important remembering each year that has gone
Archived into memories where they belong
That reflects the life of the person that’s you…..
to farewell the old, while welcoming the new.
