options…

so
it ‘s
outside
your door
waiting for you
to
open wide
and let
the new year in
but
you hesitate
what if
the new year
shackles you
to your old fears
and
your old
despairs
what if
if you don’t
open the door
will you die
or flow into
the abyss
or maybe
purgatory
where you’ll
get out for
good behavior
maybe
just maybe
it really
doesn’t
matter
what
you
do

  1. Another good one! Why is it that it seems you write many of these poems for my benefit? But, then again, one of the greatest values of your poems is that they apply to so many of us. Good Luck in keeping so productive in this new year.

  2. Oh, but it DOES matter, my friend. I am sending you a big hug and pulling you through. You do NOT get to be pessimistic about the new year. Now laugh really loud and do a crazy jig and shout “feliz ano novo!”and the ritual will be complete.

  3. In the grand scheme it might not matter a bit what is done, however, it certainly seems to matter to some while life happens. Out of purgatory on good behavior—what a line!
