Finally another year has arrived
Praise the achievements for which I strived
Pursue the dreams on which I’ve thrived

Each year my goals become dearer
As they focus in becoming clearer
Aware that death looms ever nearer

Don’t waste my life
Toxic ones cause strife
Cut all delusions with a knife

Nurture myself guard my morals
Never resting on my laurels
Or wasting energy in useless quarrels

Keep my mind and body fit
Ignite my humour use my wit
Enjoy my time with others just sit

Indulge my worthy passions
Eat healthy not meagre rations
Don’t be distracted by fashions

Know that words and actions reap
So be careful and do not weep
While ensuring plenty of sleep
