New Year, Old Year

To some, a welcoming event;
to others, a reminder of eminent age.

To some, a new resolution;
to others, a year of dread.

To some, a new planning;
to others, conformity.

What say you, a new year or old;
if changes are made for the sake of year,
instead of changes made within.

The year seems to change but
what changes is idea within,
the number we give meaning to
the days we imagine,
the months that seemingly tick;
all but occurring in mind.

Had there been changes,
it has to be in mind;
for if the source is not changed,
what difference will that make
of the world coming and going,
oblivion to what is stored within.

Change your mind
the world will change,
and sure it does
as what you perceive
of the world,
is what is in you, the mind.

Happy or dreadful New Year,
whatever meaning given to it,
makes no meaning
except all in the mind.
