A year of sadness, a year of strife

I took my first job, I saw the end of a young life

A love affair ended, a new one begun

The tide is changing, yet I've just begun

2016 an ending of  much, 2017 the beginning of adult

Choices I must make, decisions to last 

Can you hear my plight? Will I choose the right path?

2016 has taught me so much, 2016 has been kind of rough

I look upon the path ahead, with no regrets of where I have been,

because 2016 has taught me to live, and live I must until I end.
