My body aggravated, confused by physical tests,But pain lacks capacity to conquer my best.Dear pain, for you, is a New Years request.Don’t cloud my wits—attack, bother, or nag.My mind won’t accept what it is that you add.There will be consequences when you are bad.I am mindful of judgments you propose to my ear.In positivity, a spirit is absent of fear,Affirmation awakens to all I hold dear.Don’t threaten my spirit; make me weary or weak,Negotiate no limits from my head to my feet.Courage smuggled into the light, your defeat.No blind expectations pain, we are akin,But mind—spirit nurtures what resides in this skin.So it is with resolve that this New Year begins.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
