In Lieu of Resolutions

At the ending of the year
when recollections travel far
from present day,
we reminisce.

Time passes fast
and all too soon we see
the gray, those silver strands
that streak the gold.

Spider cracks
etch wizened hearts. So much
is lost to gravity
and we have used up

all excuses. Still we rise again
and keep the lesson,
freed from inner prisons
by new vision

that turns foes to friends
as fears retreat, felled
by the majesty
of faith.
