A New Year

A new year

has arrived

but the same

old issues remain.

Nothing has

changed for you

it’s just another

link in the chain

that ties you down

so, you

can’t break free.

No matter

where you look

you won’t

find the key

to open the lock

and rise

to your feet,

then with

some relish

this new year

you can greet.

Instead you fear

the passing days,

hopelessly feeling like

you are

lost in a maze.

A never-ending

circle of doubt

with no one around

to hear you shout.
