Jan 8
Is jaded January here to stay?
will winter doom and gloom ever go away?
afternoon descending into another dark night
lost in a fog of uncertainty with no end in sight

Every day can feel like a mountain to climb
so go at your own pace, take your time
if life is a marathon, why run it in 2 hours?
stop to think, breathe the air, smell the flowers

A new year can bring hope of better days ahead
what's done is over, the future don't dread
live in the moment when days lose their meaning
housework and chores, I'm sure that shelf's leaning

No two days should ever be the same
pointlessly fanning a dwindling flame
welcome in good health, don't show it the door
good days aren't one-offs, there will be plenty more

Won't be long before the days are lighter
when the sun shines, our worlds feel brighter
feelings of sadness are normal this time of year
stay close to warm hearts, may they bring you cheer
Go well everyone
