My New Year Resolution

As the New Year bell rings, I hope for you it brings
Love, good health, and prosperity.
May this year be the best, with more than the rest
of much joy and levity.

This is my chance. My life to enhance
With a New Year resolution.
Show love, give more, weigh less than before
They are my bold ambition.

I’ll start it right with all my might
A new fortitude is why.
But before I can diet, on the counter I spy it
That left-over piece of pie.

That bold resolution was just an illusion.
That lasted not a day.
It’s not a disaster, no change I am after;
I like me just this way
