For Carry On Tuesday


Same old, same old, sad old year
Regrets…? Perhaps a few
Another year, another chance
To start our lives anew

Half the time, I’ve half a mind
To make more time for you
The other half, on the other hand
Confusion clouds my view

Too many irons in too many fires
Too much on my plate
In truth, all lies, if truth be known
Truth is, it’s not too late

My clear intent, to clear the way
My resolution spoken
My promise that, I promise, will
Survive intact, unbroken

    Lelablonde; We often get too absorbed with things that don't really matter.
