RESOLUTIONS AND REVOLUTIONS
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt
Revolution – The action of a celestial body going around in an orbit or elliptic course.
Example: Earth revolves around sun and gives us one year.
Resolutions can be like Revolutions.
Resolutions can orbit around self,
Like earth orbits around sun.
The word “I”
New Year’s Resolutions.
Tired of singular pronoun
