each new year

we embark on a journey

to find ourselves

in the midst of all the mess

we’ve created and we

sink our heels into

this “newness” without

considering the trails

of tears and tired hearts,

destroyed and distorted

minds as a result of our

insolent words and

pessimistic spirits.

therefore,

our first step is not

in our personal declaration

to change,

but repairing what we’ve

broken.
