Year’s End


On New Year’s Day
I look in the glass,
And reflect upon
The year that is past.
I’m one year bigger,
But that doesn’t show,
For growing happens
To be very slow.
I’m smarter by a year,
A grade higher in school,
But I still find it hard
To obey every rule.
Today is the day
To think how to be better,
How to improve myself
Letter by letter.
For me, being better
Is ever so tough.
I wonder, I wonder,
Is one year enough?
