Original Work: Boring January by Eleanor St Clair

My sister told me January was boring. I disagree.
There are so many things January brings,
things to excite and amaze.
Things begin in January.

My new years resolution is still,
unspoilt, it could be kept.
I stop putting things off until the new year,
I can go for that run right now. Maybe.

Shops are busy with January sales,
I have no money anyway.
Staying away isn’t hard.
The supermarket is pretty empty again.

The thank you letters have been sent.
Christmas is over.
My time is my own again,
To waste as I see fit.

I can start again in January.
Failures from last year can be
Forgotten, cleaned up, erased.
Ready to make new mistakes again.
