It’s the start that stops most of us

resolutions are dropped

as glasses are raised

in a New Year’s toast to us

most mean well

most can hardly tell

why most mostly fail

while most others mostly boast to us

it’s the start that stops most of us

We resolve to consume less

get our shoes from Payless

pay less time to daytime soap stress

and more time to our night-time love nest

love less needless drama

and give more love to our baby’s mama

We resolve to lose those extra pounds

round by round

to fight our way up off the ground

to lay our financial burdens down

to take that wait off our shoulders

increase self-esteem

to be that much bolder

We resolve to give birth to a new self

take our lifelong dreams down off the shelf

put our Queens back on lands flowing with wealth

we resolve, we resolve, we resolve

we resolve to start supporting us

but it’s the start

that stops

most of Us
