idle reflection

Dear Self,

A world you traversed in but just one year,
To witness a life you would rather not hear.
Now you’re back where you started,
With little to show,
But life lived idly,
and webs you must sow.

A promise you make must be that which you keep,
Dreams you’ve dreamt must be those that you reap.
So dwell light on your follies,
And build strongly your strengths,
Or growth will come slowly,
And diversions at length.

A new year is dawning with all the same traits,
Disguised as a memory a new world awaits.
Fear little the unknown,
Dread not the mundane,
For life will run quickly,
And time knows no name.
