New year, old news by #ASykes

It seems that right when the ball dropped 
You already started to drop the ball
And all the things I’ve called to a stop
Are the reason you no longer stop and call 
But even if it all stops 
I won’t stop at all 
And it’s not because it’s New Years, it’s just what grey hairs do
I’ve been at it for over two years 
And I’ll  continue in the New Years too 
So you decided to change for the New Years? Cool 
If you didn’t develop from the old years,that just makes you a New Years’s fool 
Because resolutions don’t equal execution 
It’s just more or less, more of less Improving that you already wasn’t doing 
So instead of keeping it moving
You keep choosing..
 To keep moving towards what’s already gone 
All this time you held off, when it’s time to stop holding on…
to things that have been putting you on hold, And start moving…
on to something that worth not losing 
And at times the best way to do that is by not choosing,
but choosing to not give up
Because before you were down 
and chose not to get up 
As if you’re deaf… once the sound dies down, 
all that left is the light you were blinded by… of a life you were meant to live up
So for me New Years is just old news
It’s like having a new pair of old shoes
