ANOTHER YEAR

I grew, I stagnated

I soared, I drowned

I spoke truth, I dissembled

I hung on, I let go

I envisioned, I lost sight

I laughed, I cried

I was talkative, I was silent

I hoped, I abandoned hope

I floundered, I succeeded

I clasped pleasure, I gripped pain

I was inspired, I was jaded

I was passionate, I was laissez-faire

I contemplated, I scorned

I comforted, I agitated

I filled, I emptied

I was savvy, I was fooled

I fell back, I stepped up

I stepped aside, I came forward

I entertained, I was bored

I used my gifts, I squandered time

I talked, I listened,

I towed the line, I walked in circles

I gained, I lost

I was enlightened, I was perplexed

I ministered, I hindered

I friended, I unfriended

I grasped joy, I grieved

I mothered, I chastised

I advanced, I retreated

I was abundant, I was mediocre

I dreamed, I prayed, I wished, I hoped, I planned

I strived to be more human

I strived to be less human

Another year
