New Year. New Me?

How many times have you said that?
Each year you want to change.
Look outside at the trees,
You see their leaves?
Gone.
Now look at the grass
Do you see flowers?
Gone.

In fall the trees are adored,
By winter they are forgotten.
Why?
Because they become naked and exposed.
They learn and take what’s needed
From the leaves and lose them.

During this time they lose the one thing
That brings them beauty
Why?
To protect themselves.
And as the spring comes,
They flourish
Reminding others of the beauty it brings.

New Year, New Me
I get it.
There’s a nice ring to it.
But do you really know who you are?
If you truly want to change
Like the seasons,
Know who you are.

Focus on you,
And what truly benefits you.
Stop Living for others,
They dont get to keep
Your Memories.
