The year of perfect vision
Clear interpretative reactions to the nuances life deals
Like a poker hand
Never knowing what you’re gonna get
Straight, two pair, king high, full house, royal flush?
A superpower not to be taken lightly
Genie-like wish granted to us for a year
In the present tense
The ability to decipher meanings
Hidden, obvious, obscure,
Reading between the lines to extract true purpose
Enlightened in Stoic calm
Clarity available in the give-and-take
Even thinking of the great line while the conversation is still happening
A hall pass to unlock the unknown, time to learn to see
The year we decide to decide
Embrace and enjoy!
