Weekend Writing Prompt — Good Intentions

At the stroke of midnight
I said goodnight
To yet another less than fulfilling year
But today is a new beginning
A harbinger of what could be
And I will commit
To looking ahead
To finding the light
To fighting off dissent
Until dinner tonight

(Exactly 45 words)

Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “goodnight.”

Also for these daily prompts: Scott’s Daily Prompt (stroke of midnight), Word of the Day Challenge (beginning), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (harbinger), E.M.’s Random Word Prompt (commit), My Vivid Blog (ahead), Ragtag Daily Prompt (light), Your Daily Word Prompt (dissent), and The Daily Spur (dinner).

    Wow! A good poem as well as meeting all those prompts and constraints. I like it – and I like the last line – sums my life up!
