I awake to a new day
Yet feel unenthusiastic.
Unlike most others, I don't really care
That the new day brings upon a new year.

It just means milestones occur.
Important events. Changes.
My birthday's in 16 days.
Adulthood approaches rapidly, and I'm unprepared.

Am I immature? Am I not ready?
I'm unsure. Yet I remain steadfast.
I'm not ready for this change.
That day will only add pressure on me.

Their expectations are high, I suppose.
"You're going to be a computer engineer." Or something like that.
But I'm…confused. Parts of it I'm not good at.
And I'm left wondering if I even care about that class anymore.

What if I don't want to pursue that?
Will it be a waste of my "talent" or is it just a fleeting interest?
I suppose I could take up writing but…
We all know that's just wishful thinking.

My mind's clouded, uncertainty filling it to the brim.
And as each minute passes, I just count down the days
Until I can talk to her again.
Even if we're far from each other, we'll still be connected.

Just like the days before.
And then, I'll make her smile.
In that moment, I'll forget about my own troubles.
And focus on hers.

Is this a bad thing to do? Probably.
Do I care too much? Perhaps.
Will this help me forget about everything though?
No. It won't. But at least I can be happy.

Even if that's for a few hours a week.
I guess there's a lot going on with me that I refuse to acknowledge.

I'm a fool.

It's the first hour of the new year and I feel whole.
It could be because of all the champagne
Or the fact I realized that **** happens and you can't control it, so you might as well just smile
I'm pushing the thought of you away
I'm smiling and laughing with my mom and sister
I feel happy
I'm a tad drunk but you guys dont mind right?

'Happy New Year. . .'*

Happy new year.
I wish you the best for the year ahead.
I hope the year is full of bliss,
Full of joy .
I hope you find love,
I hope you find the one.
No matter the challenges,
Whatever the new year brings forth,
Don't worry, fear not.
I know you'll come out on top.

I bury this year's stillborn dreams
in the soil of despair, before the
new year begins with colorful
explosions embroidered in the sky.
Richard Frank Dec 2018
My eyes ran naked across the sky
It was bombarded with flashing bright colors
They were shining with passion
Souls seemingly igniting high up the clouds, greeting the stars from above
They are free falling, they are lost
Leaving traces of ashes and dust

Ashes that signifies the past that they left behind
Scattered dust that symbolizes our vague perception of our future
They befriend with our sweet night sky, like how we will greet our new year
The flashing lights, asking us to be exactly who we are,
Magnificent spark of human life
Just like that fireworks, we ought to appreciate whatever happened and whatever will happen.

Happy new year everybody!
Have a fun and jolly day!
A year has come and gone in a blink of an eye
Time is really fast you know?
So don't forget to spend it with your family and love ones
Again happy new year
And let's enjoy the holidays still to come!

Happy New Year to you all.
May your dreams and wishes come true, for each and everyone of you.

May your family roll in a wealth of happiness.
May you shine your light and let love in.
May you flourish in all you strive to do.
May 2019 be good to you.

Say goodbye to 2018.
It was mostly good and not too mean.
It was one of the better, recent one, that has been.

So raise your glasses and with me give cheers and thanks for another, coming, year.

Happy 2019
Happy New Year everyone, i hope you and your families are blessed with a good one.
Little Peony Jan 2018
so here's to the step i take
to the path i chose
i hope you're going well
hoping for you to be good
and your path may become
clearer than before
so you could see
how wonderful it was
to be broken
pieces to pieces
to be wounded and healed
over and over again


here are the pieces of life
that i chose to bring with
the remaining half of me
which i don't even remember

the pieces that've been glued in tears,
fake laughter,
and loneliness

in hoping that it could grow
into something new
once again
and again.

This poem marks my wishes that
I want in this New Year.
2017 is now a closed chapter,
and I hope to leave all the misfortune behind.
So I pray

That this year, I will be blessed with happiness
and stability for everyone; my three families.
My friends, my blood, and HelloPoetry...

This year, I will be able to hone my craft
and have to confidence to go
after my dreams.

And finally,
I pray that my mother remains in good health.
Let me not worry about her all the time.

2017 has been a year of heavy burdens.
Where I felt like I couldn't handle anything.
I know there is no end to our burdens, so
I ask for you to broaden my shoulders
So I can bear the burdens
and grasp my blessings.
2017 was messed up. I swear alot of things happened where I felt so overwhelmed that there were times where I cried so hard and I wanted to fade away.
I hope that 2018 will be a better year, for me and for everyone else.
Happy New Year, HelloPoetry!
