I watch the New Year sun rise up in the sky, the orange hue bursting in the horizon and world lit up. My heart lifted, the soul soaked up the newness, and hope entered every pore of my being. I felt the troubles of the previous year ebb away like water during a low tide, and hope coursed through my heart, lifting it.
I have worked towards achieving certain goals and desires, and have felt the disillusionment of not attaining them. This feeling of helplessness had led to my drive and desire ebbing and my passions stemming. But watching the New Years sun rising up in the sky, my hope arose and I was confident, this year would see the realisation of my goals and dreams.
