inspiration for the new year
Every year, many of us make Resolutions or say 'New year, new me!': then get to the end and realise we didn't stick to them for long, or at all, and nothing's really changed. Often this is because the goals are too big to complete in a year, they're too specific, we don't consciously work on them, or other things get in the way!
I want to promote a different kind of thinking. Don't aim to change loads of things about yourself: a new year isn't a call to become a different person, it's an opportunity to resolve to become an even better version of you. One that is more self-confident, more focussed on what you want to achieve, and more fulfilled by what you love doing! The ultimate goal is to end the year feeling
Dear Poetry,I am trying to cover my sadness with words.Dear Poetry, by DearPoetry
Tape them against my scars
& wear them like worthy paper cuts.
My tears are alcohol swabs, burning & cleansing
wounds of my own making. Sometimes,
I wish I could hide behind them forever.
But not even this journeyed flesh can stand
castle strong against speechless ink stains.
I know the code. This body does not deserve
a warriors death. & poetry, you're a monster
a creative monster, but evil nonetheless.
I wish to string you into knots, force feed you
down the throats of others. De-format you
& leave you empty; freeversed-
to hang loosely along the heartstrings
of strangers, & past lovers.
We are the perfect poster children for
battered homes, aren't we poetry?
The dysfunctional couple
black-eyed and angry love.
You can't protect me from myself forever.
