Reflect upon the past few days, weeks, months, years
Remember the times you laughed out loud, cried out tears
The old year is soon to be done, the new year will have soon begun
Cross my heart, I won’t fall apart
I will stand tall
Letters and numbers may judge me on the outside
But you don’t know what animal I can become on the inside
Fire bursting out of my heart
I will show you all

Let us create our own legacy
Come and create your own masterpiece
Strive to thrive this new beginning
Forgive and forget your old endings
This legacy will close one door and open another
It’s better to run and take the chance
Then stand around, hands nailed down, with regrets
