An acrostic poem about finding a path forward

N ot the year that I expected
E choes of longing and regret
W inter soul searching

Y earning for real change
E xisting rather than living fully
A state of inertia week after week
R etrospective on another year gone

S tatus quo stagnation

Introvert on the outside living loudly on the inside. Taking it a day at a time. Poetry is my flow.
