I had someone tell me some time ago,
that I want people to think like I do.
Furthermore I was asked to lighten up,
that made me feel like I was a whipped pup.

Then I began musing those words over,
on these days after spices and myrrh,
after a while I dissected the words,
I decided I was a one-way bird.

My passion get stirred and, yes I get hot,
Sometimes I feel the urge to speak my thought,
Without regard for other points of view,
I just hit the keyboard and bad words flew.

So tomorrow we have a brand new year,
and I do believe I shall volunteer,
A New Years Resolutions me to make,
the words that hurts I shall put on the brakes.

I know that all should be happy with this,
though somewhere in the back I hear a hiss.

Enjoyed your "rank", and wish you and all other poets here, a very happy and healthy new year.

What a great resolution! It is one that would benefit many other as well to adopt it... myself included. ~L

Thank you, Lori. I don't usually make New Years Resolutions, but I felt this one deep inside. Had to go out of a limb with it. Drinking my first Cuba Libre.

Long ago in RVN, I thought it was said best when the cute little gals would say..."Be Nice"!

I found that expression to work everywhere, each and every year. I believe yours would too JerryPat.

I believe that expression is very profound, Bluesy. I hope I can type this correctly, I began bringing in the New Years with 80 proof Rougaroux Full Moon Dark Rum made at the Distilled by a local distillers, the Donner-Peltier Distillers, located about two miles from where I sit in Thibodaux, Louisiana. GOOD stuff . . . https://www.facebook.com/jerr00pat . . .

my hat's off to you! I polished off a diet Dr. pepper at about 9:30 and went to bed. lol! I thought about opening up a bottle of Sweet Lady wine that comes from a local vineyard and is one of my favorites (that my son had brought me for my Bday earlier that day) but decided to save it till I can share it.
Hope you aren't feelin' it today and you have a great new year. ~L

Nope, I feel pretty good today, Lori, even after my bout with the Rougaroux Rum . . . I did have a pretty good buzz on, but unlike in years past I knew when to stop.

May this new year be better for you and hubby. He has gone through a lot, and I hope so much that he will have beat his problem. Good to "see" you on this first day of the year.

Sounds like you had a Happy New Year which is just what I was hoping you and everyone had!

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather...not like the passengers screaming in the back of his car.

Yes, my New Years was very good, Stacy, hoping yours was also.
