Like broken bodies scattered o’er the landscape of the years,
Those New Year resolutions blight my soul with countless tears.

Oh, how I loathe the weaknesses revealed by how I’ve failed.
The guilt! The shame! “I’m such a loser!” often times I’ve wailed.

But things will change with this New Year. Yes, just you wait and see.
From here on out, I'm going to be a very different me.

I shall not fail another time. I’ve got it figured now.
I promise that I’ll never make another New Year vow.

I like it! :) I stumbled over the rhythm on the line with "difference", because I tend to pronounce it as a two-syllable word (diff'rence).
