A New Year

a poem by

Shagufta Sayyed

There’s a new day
We call it with feast
We call it the hope
We call it the new year

Its a new dawn, they say
A new start they pray
A new chance for old
A new year to unfold

Its a new challenge
Its a new chase
Its a new fight
Its a new year

Challenge from past
Bait from failure
Can you reach it this time?
The goal you have set

Its tick of the clock
Daring you to chase
Question of deception
The old promises made

Embracing the past
Armed with lessons
Marching, to defeat the old
There’s a New Year to overcome
