The purge of 2020; what will you gain?
A resolution alone won’t turn the tide;
Strong mental fortitude, the muscle to strain.
The strength of dreams can fade, disappear, or hide.
Action and effort: the understated truths;
Hope without drive, the mindset of naive youths.
Dip the punches thrown your way, sprawl on takedowns;
Wait for the day to start, where potential drowns.
