Eugi”s Causerie Weekly Prompt – Promises

It’s no good making them if you never keep them,

It’s like going in circles, treading water and all that.

But we always make New Year promises,

And everybody knows we’ve forgotten them by next week.

It’s some sort of game you play isn’t it,

Say things, make things up

Knowing you’ll never honour a single one.

Well yes, it’s the tradition of welcoming the New Year

Resolving to make yourself a better person

At least that’s the intention

Until life takes over

Then it’s every man for himself.

Yes, I’m not playing this year.

    Oh, so true! I don’t make NY resolutions because I know it is a waste of time for me. I set mini-goals throughout the year. Wishing you a safe and joyful 2022, Michael.

    I haven’t played the game for years!
