Haiku Poem – 年頭の誓い

my lofty goals
only to be forgotten
next year for sure

(Jim version)
がんばります つぎつぎ しっぱい らいねん は

(Michiko version)
けいぞく は きんちょうかん で ちから なる

The new year is here and along with all of the festivities that take place, one of the traditions of New Years is to have a New Years resolution. It can be something like losing weight, take up an exercise program or stop eating certain foods or maybe stop smoking or drinking. It is always something that is done to better oneself but it can also be something simple like traveling to a different country that the person has always wanted to go to. Unfortunately the resolutions often get thrown away as some things like quitting smoking or drinking are too hard or finding the time to exercise regularly is very difficult. Some resolutions may be to hard to reach but others can be easier to achieve. Improving ones job or education may be easier than quitting smoking. I am pretty sure all of us had had resolutions that we could not achieve!
