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!
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM BOWMAN AUTHOR!
