Haibun, Poetry by Sarah

Make It Count

some years disappoint
throwing blow after blow, but
an end is in sight

Resilience is a curious thing, never failing to deliver the message: “In life, there are ups and downs”. With the good comes the bad, for otherwise, how could we tell the difference? As 2017 draws to a close, I am filled with relief. It has been a lesson in bouncing back and never giving up. Next year I pledge 2704 positive hours. That’s 365 days times by 7.5hrs out of the 24, I am given each day. Enough time to make it count.

optimism wins
roll the dice, hope for the best
a new year awaits
