2020 Vision: A New Year’s Rhyme

I am not comfortable with the word “resolution,” so I penned this rhyme using other words as well as resolution, such as vision, intention, and goals. Choose what works for you and ……….



The invention of intention invites 
my New Year’s contention.

Our resolve simply dissolves
as each January day evolves.

By month’s end we amend
what we started to defend.

Resolutions are not solutions, 
Unless you start with your whole heart

And love your inner child,
whether sad or even wild,

With your goal each and every day
to own what you do and say.

Just be honest and be clear
each day of this New Year!

Wishing you 2020 vision
with every sparkling bright decision!





Additional Poem by Stanley Fink


My friend Stanley sent another poem after I posted the one for today, but too good to pass up, because of its positive tone:


Passing Through
The year 2019 shows signs of wear.
Even though life was more than fair,
It is time to let it pass without a tear
And reap the benefits of a great year.
Again, Happy New Year!
