It's the first of the new year

It's the first of the new year,

A new page of an unwritten book,

What do I write versus what is prescribed?

     "Plan, plan, plan"

     "Make every day something to remember"

Can't I just rest and enjoy that we've made it this far?

My bones,

     My body,

          My spirit

Are calling me to back to bed, 

I need to sit this one out.

There's always tomorrow for that,

Tomorrow will be so much better than today.

I shall lay here and dream the day away

Of the things to be done in the coming days,



I shall organize,



              Work harder

But not today, I shall do it tomorrow.

Thanks for the compliments. It wasn't about being scared, just taking a day of procrastinating and enjoying what is instead of trying to make life perfect.

The last line is perfect.....says to me about maybe being a little scared it's worse than the previous year so putting it off is the better always beautifully written.....Jeff....
