New year (ir)resolution

I never understood the hype of New Year,
As though it took away your greatest fear.
Better grades, skinnier thighs, and big innovations,
They were in the top of everyone's resolutions.

Each time someone approaches me,
To share their goals over a cup of tea;
I can't help but smirk and snigger,
"You fool, why do you seem so eager?"

I know I sound a tad bit sceptical,
I'm sorry but I'm just being practical.
New year resolutions may sound brilliant;
Wait for a month, we'll see if you're still efficient.

Someone asked me what were my plans,
I pouted and revealed my empty hands.
I don't know what's in store for the year,
But my aim for tomorrow, I'm very clear.

The year's aspirations won't get you far,
It's each day's commitment that raises the bar.
"I think in terms of the day's resolutions,
not the years," said someone who had the solutions.


Yes, new year resolutions aren't the wisest and most practical things, but who says a new year wish list isn't feasible?

These are the few things that I'm excited to get this year!

(1) As a budding writer, I'm definitely hoping to possess a sleek fountain pen of my own.

(2) As a fervent and dedicated fan of Cristiano Ronaldo, I am adamant about inheriting my very own Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo 7 Home Kit Jersey!

(3) I'm getting extremely sick and tired of the cold winter. In anticipation for spring, the sun and outdoor activities, I've been eyeing a particular cosy cardigan. Check it out!

I'll stop with these 3 items for now, before I get carried away! Now that I've shared mine, what are some of the items on your wish list?
