Another year, a new view
restart of life, and review
of old ways now past due
for a refreshed state of mind
growing clear, but still inclined
to revert to times when happiness
was the hardest place to find-
for life and love did not coincide.
But despite the error waged in lust
this heart in full has paid its debt
served as a fool to such mistake
as believing love’s counter true.
There hidden in the false prelude,
a truth revealed with shining proof
that life is better lived in light of all
you want to be and do, for only you.
