A promising new start 

From the old year, we part 

Still, I fear

Everything will be the same as last year


The harsh cold creeps in 

The delicate snowflakes begin 

This frigid weather should be a sin 

I am not sure this year will be a win 


I start to think 

I can not let waning my positivity sink

I do not want to blink 

And have the year go by in a wink 


I will work hard 

This negative feeling will not lurk

Now this new mindset irks

My attitude will rework


This will be my year 

I now refuse to hear

Any excuses as to why my goals will not be near

2022 is no longer my fear
