the challenge of a new year


So the balloon of numbers,

so shiny on New Years Eve,

loses lustre on day two of the year.

What do you do?

Give up and just stare?

Or commit to the process that life’s not fair.

NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 2: a to-and-fro on commitment




I really love you, I want to commit,

But life has me stressed

up to the armpits.



You love your stress, can’t live without,

you create it all ways.

In you I doubt.



If only they knew the short time they had left

they’d spend less on the lack,

nor let fear be their theft.
