New Year Resolution

Posted on Updated on

On this lovely winter’s morn,
I took my daily constitution;
and reflected thereupon,
my New Year’s resolution.

To do away with hurt and strife,
to cause the thoughts of war to cease;
to initiate the joys of love,
to bring about the gift of peace.

To promote forgiveness, and to forget,
to bind the wounds of one another;
to treat all people with respect,
to treat all men, as your brother.

To pray, to laugh, to be content,
to elevate one’s holy soul;
to recognize deficiencies,
get rid of them and make one whole.

To lend a hand when it is needed,
to bend a bit, but not to break;
to share the spirit with each other,
to honor God, for heaven’s sake.


– David Lessard
