I Start Me A New Beginning
A Poem On New Year Resolutions And The Journey Ahead


Seeking to know and learn some more
I still have ways that I must travel
Grateful and thankful in many ways
I remain humbled by more to learn

Though exhausting it seems at times
Defeated and beaten down sometimes
I learn that I can always pick me up
And start again to make new strides

So in these days of fleeting illusion
I must stand for myself to live and be
And though I may have failed before
I will try some more, again and again

Though the path be strewn with thorns
And may be slippery at best at times
Through the valley and shadow ways
In God’s own hands I trust my course

The Light of God will shine my path
The Sound of God will lead my way
As I start me yet a new beginning
To emerge again, a glorious Soul.
