[Work in Progress]

The metaphorical dead weight went first
With tears and farewells not so fond

The last of you lingered longer
Literally a part of me
Not living
Not dead
Not growing
But not gone

Today, I made the final cut
And left the last year on the floor
In savage shreds
To be swept

And now these things remain:
The living
The new
And hope
