NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS
If only you know resolutions are beyond writing
But based on how well you’ve mastered the right thing
Resolutions are not a wishlist culture
They need to reminisce in their head throughout the year
Because your refusal to make it work will bring you torture.
Everyone is putting something down on a paper
So you decided to join without thinking proper
You wrote down first class
But always not in class
My brother and my sister stay calm
Are you not your scam?
You want to get a car and a mansion
But yet you keep chatting and saying I don’t like stress
Hope you know that jail, is not just for big thieves.
Your bravado in mere nothingness
Has deposited a temporal joy in your heart
And sadly it has refused you a push out of stagnation.
You are pregnant with ideas
But they keep going off through your loins of procrastination
You keep wasting your time trying to tell Don
How you caught Simon sneaking out of his bedroom
Yet, you refuse to work on your own life.
This is a new year
Act and go off the shackles of fear
If you want to live according to all you have planned
You need to train yourself
By eliminating the thief who is armed to the teeth
Who is ready to steal your time.
