The First of January

Is a loaded day.
Deeply hungover
From the year before
While keenly aware
That a new season has come.
Schedules refresh,
New opportunities arise
Yet the rule of progress
Remains the same:
Who you are
Matters more than what you do
So as you make plans
And forge those proverbial resolutions
Be sure to tend to your character;
To care not just about
The things you will achieve this year
But the person you are becoming
Along the way.
