With 2018 at its brink


Don’t rely on a year to bring the change,
It was never a magical year but a magical you.

Don’t rely on the first day of the first month of yet again another year to alter the routine,
It was never a fairylike day but a fairylike determination.

Don’t rely on an astrologer’s verdict of your coming year,
It was never the result of his verdict but your efforts’.

Don’t rely on New Year resolutions as well,
It were never a year’s resolutions but a day’s planned repeated maneuver.

And just like that, don’t rely, again, on the people who ditched you this year,
People do change, yes! A character rarely does.

Instead, rely on the fierce fire within you,
On the famishing dreams within you,
On the raging passions within you,
On the indomitable yearning within you. 

And when, 
with 2018 at its brink, 
you look back, 
you will see what made 2018 your year.

      Yes, you marked the 1000th one, Natasha. A big thanks is coming your away.😄
      I am glad they made you feel that way. World is small; blogosphere has made it smaller. We meet people so in-sync with us, we never thought of coming across.
      Will surely check your place out.🙂

    Well penned Idle.

    i really like the lines
    ” don’t rely, again, on the people who ditched you this year”

    and that 6th stanza

    “Instead, rely on the fierce fire within you,
    On the famishing dreams within you,
    On the raging passions within you,
    On the indomitable yearning within you. ”

    great resolution poem of renewal.

      Life never ceases to surprise us, does it, Lynne? And that’s what make life what it is – a wonderful maze of unpredictable surprises.🙂
      Meeting you, through blogging, has been one of the highlights of my year as well. You introduced me to so many important things and had been so helpful with my research for courses. Can never thank you enough.☺️☺️
      This response is way too late. Apologies.

    Wonderfully expressed and much reletable as i also feel like every day has something special for us to make it really new.You beautifully included all the hypothetical essence one look forwards in new year the astrology verdicts,resolutions etc however its up to us how we realised the beauty of our dreams to achieve self realisation first.
    Keep writing & have a great week ahead😇

      It doesn’t happen this way, but I had typed “With 2018 at its brink” on my mobile, and published it within the next few minutes of having written it. Usually, I take days to finalize a post. But, luckily, this one turned out well. The reason, I feel, behind this post being relatable must have been this spontaneity.
      And you have put it down so well. Hope you’re having a great 2018, Prashantt!☺️
      May you too have a wonderful week ahead!🙂

        Poetry is somehow like this only as it gives you liberty of time and its meaning can vary on individual perception.
        I would also like to thank you as i got a idea to pen a short story from this.😇

          Wow! I’d love to read the story whenever it is ready to be served. And as this comment is way too late, I’d not be surprised if your story is already up on your blog. Is it?

            No, it isn’t but the concept is in my mind to present it satirically, humour strikes best on mind.I’ll post it soon may be this week only😇
