Countdown to NYE

Picture courtesy of

The clock ticks ever by
tick, tock, the time flies
Thinking of where to be
trapped again, a way out he sees
Waiting and biding his time
impatient for that mountain to climb
A few hours left to go
the past year gone with a blow
And another will begin anew
with a new life he hopes to choose
A happy New Year he does crave
before he ends in an early grave
But no! He does think too much
always it comes in a rush!
This New Year he shall focus
not get caught in the circus
Too much to do, too much to see
he needs to focus on self-belief
And so the countdown continues on
towards that new beautiful song
