Fresh January

I stayed awake Welcoming the year
With an open Arms and Gloomy eyes
Counting for the year which promised
Long Health and short pains

Yet the Year began with an Hangover
Where there was no regret of yesterday
The previous night was a celebration of Victory
Of survival, of new friends and new Place

The days here were Long and Hot
The winds here were Strong and Fierce
The lights here were dark and Gloomy
The people here were amazing and Good

We went to the beaches of Atlantic
Where fun and anxiety stayed at bay
We drank our hearts out that day
We cheered to friendship and companionship

Yet it was the first month of the Year
It was the beginning of a new start
How i was wrong when i Said
It promised Long health and Short pains.

This is a post for  Month of the Year Challenge   Which I just happen to come upon randomly.

At times Randomness brings you close to something or conspires you to bring out what you have been hiding within yourself. So true in this case.

This randomness did bring out some emotions of Joy and Self-Discovery that I can easily say has been the best time of my life. Looking forward for writing about the other months too. 


  1. I so loved it.
    specially the last lines. It so sounds true for each one of us. at-least once or twice i do wonder if i really asked the right thing at beginning of this year. but each year brings us a lot of learning and love too. And that we must cherish. glad to see your post :)

    1. Thanks Nimue...
      Hope to complete the 12 month Post soon...
