The Holidays are passing, but the new year 2015 awaits with unknown chapters to write in our lives. No matter how much we plan, the year ahead is always a secret yet to be revealed…

The chimes of life
The Chimes of Life…

Do you fear the gargoyles of the future or the past?

Are the spirits hidden in your bell-tower mind resurfacing?

The dreaded memories continue to last

Into the future, creating new havoc from old rehearsing.

Can you not release the demons and fear

That you struggled with in yesterday-year?


Or are you facing the new year to come

With pictures in your mind of evil faeries

From which you would like to run?

You shall not linger and be merry

As you close your mind to prophetic dreams

And daunting doomsday fiends.


Close your eyes and your mind

To a past that cannot be changed.

It’s over…it’s gone…there is no time…

For dwelling on problems for which you were blamed.

By the same token, what we worry about will appear

Most often so much  less than we fear.


We make New Year’s resolutions to right the wrongs

And ease our conscience of that which we cannot change.

Open your heart and fill your soul with song,

Erasing the images that have become engrained

In the scripts in our heads…repetition breeds negativity,

But we can say “No!” and create a new reality.

Let go of the past and do not fear what you do not know.

Wipe clean the slate and let happiness flow!
