New Year’s Resolution
My new year’s resolution is
To demand more from life.
This year I learned that
Each time I put my foot down
And say– I’m gonna try anyway
It pays off.
I don’t berate, demean, or manipulate, I just simply
Try in whatever way I can, and
Even when I fail I learn a bit about
Someone or something I didn’t beforehand–
I need to keep demanding
The more I demand the more in-demand I become and
The more I have to share with everyone.
I need to get off my feet
And demand more from myself, that way
I can keep learning who I am
When I don’t set limits based on where I came from.
I am from Ohio and we end sentences
With prepositions, whenever and wherever
We can fit one in, on.
That’s right– I’m starting with grammar.
