From Now On
From Now On…………………!
How often have we said these words?
With resolve and determination
Promising to cast aside the past
Espousing complete transformation
Why wait for Near Year to make a pledge?
For any time in life’s daily course
Will serve as well as any other
Our good intention to endorse
But déjà vu comes into mind
When committing to renewal
How often in days gone past
Has failure struck quite cruel?
‘Cause no matter how sincere
Our stated affirmation
‘Ere long, intention cast aside
Amidst life’s trials and tribulation
But let us as in the spider myth
Our efforts not relinquish
Determined that new life to forge
Past failures we would vanquish
