What is a New Year

The day after we have asked

forgiveness from ourselves

told the truth about

what we’ve done tried to be honest

about who we are and who we aren’t

we are still today ordinary Thursday

in September a year the same as every other

and yet, a little different, newer,

we try, the way we know how,

imperfect but still, we try to be right here.
