New Year Addiction

Those few seconds before the new year

when the countdown begins,

my soul soars with so much hope and joy.

When the ball drops at Times Square,

there is a momentary

return to innocence.

As the confetti flies and music fills the air,

I imagine we are a world at peace...

no worries, no violence, no division,

just a few beautiful seconds of clarity and simplicity

that dissapates with the first boom. 

In the space of a drum beat,

the flood gates of reality open wide

drowning out my vision of peace on earth.

I wish it could stay longer...

The whole rest of my year

is spent

chasing that high.
