A calendar completes its course, it’s cycle ends this day,
People see this as a chance to live a different way.
But opportunities for transformation come each hour,
Not just when fireworks fly and great bells ring from every tower.
Every waking moment we have space to turn around
Reevaluate our goals and aim for higher ground
Through willpower freer than the chains of our own circumstance,
We can change the style and aims of our own journey’s dance.
Repentance quite literally means that you change your mind;
Transform the way you think and value every end and kind.
This precious gift from upon high to reverse our decay
And key to free us from the debt we never could repay.
