Father Time Flying Past
Well for me, at least, there is thought of the beginning here at the end or
Rather of the promise the year
Ahead held this time last year. I remember now the resolution made to fill blank
Pages with genius and devotion.
Understanding even then that these lofty goals would be subjected to my
Listen now, it’s not that I’m incapable of fulfilling personal goals
It’s more that I know my limitations and make provisions for them.
So right from the start I tell myself I’ll read twenty new books and write
Two full-length novels by year’s end.
Foolish, perhaps but here I have read more than a dozen books and finished
One entire manuscript that I’m proud of.
Resoundingly short of the goal I set, but well within the realms of respectability.
2009, will see its end and ten years from now, will not be for me the year that I did not do all I should.
0h, and neither will it be the year I did not write two masterpieces
0r will it be one I look back at with self-loathing for not losing that last
9... oh all right, ten pounds. It will be a year marked by the friends I made (Simone and all of you) and the happy memories we shared (These blog chains).
A happy prosperous year to you all from the Romantic Query Letter.
