This is a poem about New Years Resolutions I will try to keep this year.

2011 will soon be here


The end of 2010 is drawing near
A new year will arrive
Time to work on resolutions
I made back in 2005

I won't be angry with my teen
For skipping out on chores
I'll stay calm, cool, and collected
As he slams all the doors

I won't get upset if he stays out late
or when he forgets to call
I'll sit quietly by and listen
While he bounces that darn basketball

I resolve to stop nagging
if he forgets to take out the trash
I will just remind him nicely,
trying not to be brash.

If he plays his drums all day and night
Or his radio in volume overload
I will just remind him to turn it down
before my head explodes

I promise to quit complaining
I will remember to think twice
If I start to lose my temper
I promise to be nice

Wait, can I promise to do all this
I'm sure I've promised before
Maybe I'd better wait until
he turns at least 24

Good times mostly but, hey...

Good thing is, they do grow up.
