No New Year’s resolutions

No New Year’s resolutions,
No fashionable fears.
No trendy ways to see the world
Or stop imagined tears.

I’ll stand upon the bedrock
Of truth that conquered all;
Defying time’s great ravages
And even death’s grey pall.

Let it transform me day by day,
Each morn my mind renew;
Guide me back to the right path
Should I begin to skew.

It points me to a higher goal,
A vision here to share
With all those now bereft of hope
And needing clear fresh air.
