New Year New You
By Butterfly Thomas
New Year new you
I’m here stay true
It’s hard, I know
But you can do it
Your efforts will show
That you’re committed
A long time in the making
This journey has been
Look at the steps you’re taking
This time you’ll win
You will succeed
All you need
Is support from me
And you have it
Matter of fact
I’ll show you whether
We can grow together
You’re here too

About the book:
Love and passion. Conflict and regret. Pride and defiance. Rage at equality denied. Deep compassion for friends and boundless love for one’s children. These are just a few of the subjects touched upon by these 49 brief, powerful poems.
Some will fill you with shared sorrow. Many of them express anger at racial injustice and the exploitation of the disabled. Still others delight the reader with their images of strength and beauty or their clever arrangement of words.
Never pretentious or deliberately opaque, all of them are sure to make you think.
