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

I’m here

You’re here too

New Year…

Renewed you

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.
