Happy New Year

Happy new year
But we're cynical about the vigil
It’s just another day
We’re impervious to wishes and prayers
They’re just empty words
Our hearts are insulated against hope
Can’t afford another let down

From experience
Optimism doesn't stay the hands of fate
The first few minutes have no bearing
It’s a drop in the ocean of 10000 others
Whether you meet it in at the altar
Or behind a film of smoke
The new year like all news only hits once
Then it’s back to regular clockwork
Indeed only the year is new

But for the sake of those to whom it matters
Let's gift each other a Happy New Year
