Of Resolutions and Commitments

By Shruti Vairagkar (L&T Howden)

Come New Year’s Eve

All will toast and cheer.

Then proceed to resolve

Things to stop and

New practices to start.

First day of the new year

Is a Monday.

All the exercise shirkers

No longer have an excuse

Unless the resolve is

Pushed to the next Monday!

Control the anger this year

I vow;

Till the idiot weaving through

The traffic makes me hit

The brakes.

No sugar, no carbs

It’s time to trim the waist.

Egg whites for breakfast,

Salad for lunch

And end the day with

cookies and maggi for dinner.

I think we can all agree

That resolutions are

Hard to keep.

Perhaps 2018 is the year

When we can promise to

Love, laugh, and live

And be

Better human beings.

Love, laugh and live is the real resolution, if we can keep it. Beautifully written Shruti!!
