Flash 55 Friday - Happy New Year - December 31, 2010

Another year comes to an end,
I'm not so sad to see it go,
It wasn't really great for me,
It was full of misery and woe.

I look, with hope, to days ahead,
Of better times and sunny skies,
My life's in flux, there's change for me,
All to come with the year's demise.
