Break the Cycle


A pledge to

begin anew

Resolutions and restitution

Make the wrongs



Committed to

scrub away scarred skin

to reveal

tender growth

buried well beneath


Fresh faces

Untouched places

A chance to write

a different ending

to a depleted story


A lifetime

of miscalculated choices

Creates determination

to forge

a new path


Across a quiet room

a familiar face

An old friend

turned Stranger

framed with shared ambition


Each year a chance to refresh

renew, recalculate

Uneasy eyes meet

As each tries

to break

the cycle
