My New Year’s Resolutions

My New Year’s Resolutions,

are right here on this list,

and judging by the number,

there’s nothing that I’ve missed.

I’ve said I’ll walk the dog each day

and pick up all his poo.

I’ve vowed I’ll get my homework done

and even study too.

I’ve promised I’ll no longer tease

my little brother, Jake.

I’ve stated I will shovel snow

and grass and leaves, I’ll rake.

I’ve said I’ll make my bed each day

and keep my bedroom neat,

and with that final promise,

my list is sure complete.

So now I sit and watch the clock;

my New Year’s list is done,

but acting like “an angel” means

that next year won’t be fun.

  1. I wrote up my list on page one of my 2022 Bullet Journal. Then on page two, I wrote a shorter list with the heading” These ones, on the other hand, I plan to actually KEEP.”


  2. I don’t have a resolution list, but if I did make one, I’d write it at the end of the year. I’d list all the things I did do that year, then instantly cross them off.
