It's just poetry, it won't bite

Lynn White’s most recent poem to appear here was “The Hedgerow Fairies” (December 2016)

By Lynn White

I know that
nothing will be resolved,
there will be no solutions.
So I will make no resolutions,
not this year, not next.
no more.
I shall free myself
from the unresolved,
throw the past up in the air
and not bother to catch it
on the way down.
I’ll laugh as it fragments,
as it disintegrates,
as it falls about my feet.
I’ll kick it out of the way
as I resolve to move on
and leave the unresolved
behind me.
