Is this onward enough

Today marked the beginning of a new decade,
it boasted promise; its promise, change-
and oh how change came and I was willing to welcome it
but as it neared, all was uncannily familiar.
Nothing about this so-called change is different…
the clock still counts its hours,
the sun still lights the sky, blistering clouds
and shaking the darkness with a ferocity unmatched.
This faith once restored, again demolished
by a willingness to control, to manipulate
to depreciate in value and understanding.
So, again I lock down this fortress
and I will not peek out, for this cold is too cutting
and cunning; it might only damage more
this flesh as it bites. I will pull tight this shelter-
let no one in… let no warmth draft free
let no light from this fire be seen.
