New Year's

new year's season
a chance to start again
just enough reason
to think we can win

the struggle we're in
against our foolish nature
tugging us to sin
or indulge in vices baser

it seems somehow safer
to restart once a year
than to embrace the grace to savor
the daily rising, for we fear

frequent new beginnings
that baptism promises
