The New Year.... a Blank Tablet ??

So...
What does it all mean ?
This beginning of a New Year...
What does it entail ?
Whose fault WAS IT anyway ?
Is it a chance for...mmm...
"ABSOLUTION" perhaps ?

Forgiveness,,,,,
Resolve.....
Aspirations...
PROMISES....
BIG CONCEPTS....
Are they HOLLOW CONCEPTS ??
DO WE MEAN IT ??

or...
Are we simply filibustering to get through these prayer-filled days
with relatively low incidence of collision ?
What of the past ?
Do we expunge it ?
Eradicate it from our memory banks ?
or..
Do we CHERISH it ??
Do we invite the past BACK into our homes ....feed it APPLES with HONEY...
tuck it right in next to us in our beds ?

WHO ARE WE ?
HAVE WE GROWN ?
DO WE 'LOVE' ?

Is God holding our heads while we bow in humility ?
Is wearing a designer dress fluffing up our possibilies of ACCEPTANCE ?
of MERCY ???

On this eve of Rosh Hashanah...
are we READY to be BETTER ???
Are our resolutions RESOLUTE ?
