Private Pacts

Another year to add to this personal chronicle
But this time Iím not feeling melancholic or nostalgic
I think Iíve passed the midway point of this journey
And I didnít even know it or at least felt the magic
Who knows what cards Iíll be dealt by the hands of fate
I just take it day by day with short terms plans ahead
Anything longer than that requires a speculative contract
But I learned to slow down to appreciate the now instead
Yeah yeah, Iíll write another list and then tuck it away
Occasionally taking it out to fuel the dreams Iíve had
Goals unwritten are just wishes carried off in the wind
But on paper, theyíre private pacts that have made me sad
Self-Agreements are usually changing, always in progress
Adapting to the shifting factors of life that happen everyday
But most importantly, always leave some room for error
Because sometimes things may just fall deep into the fray
Call it a resolution or a self-decree to be held accountable
Write it up, type it up or whatever it takes to create the magic
Itís the end of the year and Iím older but Iím not looking back
Because this time, Iím not feeling melancholic or nostalgic
Forge ahead
