A New Year

A New year will soon arrive

but the same old issues

shall remain.

Nothing will have changed

it’s just another link

in a very long chain

that ties you down

and prevents you

from breaking free.

No matter where you look

you won’t find the key

to open the lock so you may

rise to your feet

and with some enthusiasm

this new year you can greet.

Instead you fear

the coming days,

hopelessly feeling

like you are lost in a maze,

a never ending circle of doubt

with no one around

to hear you shout.
