Here’s to us;
Making it this far,
Another year approaching,
Ready for us to take it in our stride
And as we dust down those resolutions,
Reviewing the messes we’ve made,
The triumphs we’ve tasted,
Taking a shot for every disappointment
And dancing in the embers of the past –
We bound forwards,
Revelling in the victory
Of all we’ve overcome.
Nothing compares to this strength,
The courage it take to evolve
And survive the torture of our cocoons.
For now, we emerge.
Glittering and ready
For all this year, this life
Has in store.
