Wild Weeds
Don't Throw In The Towel

      New Year's Day is often looked at as a day of renewal or a chance for a new start. There's usually a tremendous sense of optimism as people look to the future and pledge to make positive things happen during the upcoming months. Most years allow for that kind of hopefulness, but there are some years that don't look so bright. If the previous year has gone poorly and set up a number of negative trends, then the future might not look so bright. Such a year is 2023. Between growing economic and social problems and the increasing probability of a full blown world war, it's hard not to be a little pessimistic. That being said, there is a good chance that things will work out and that disaster will be avoided, but that will require a bit of luck!

Optimism has its place
Delusion is a curse
Keep your expectations low
As bad gets even worse

Don't expect a miracle
To show up as your guest
Just keep in mind this wise advice
Prepare for the worst and hope for the best

Things work out most of the time
But if they go afoul
Strategize or compromise
Don't throw in the towel
