What does it mean to boldly go
when there is no star ship in sight?
How do I get to where no one has gone before
when I don’t know if I should go left or right?
When do I make choices to go past the stars
and live without fear of a wrong turn?
Can I live long and prosper this year
and from life find lessons to learn?
Does temporal time stand still
while I decide what to do next?
Or proceed at high warp speed
faster than a fourteen year old can text?
Tell me: How I can transport into the new year
and make it the best ever?
When do I tell myself, “Make it so”
rather than slithering into never?
I’m a woman, not a doctor,
but does that really matter?
It’s time to boldly go and go and go
and not listen to self-defeating alien chatter.
I must discover the saga of what’s ahead
and not be stunned by what I find
I shall give this year all I’ve got
and not leave any directives or red shirts behind
The best intentions shall (La)forge ahead
and beam me to a place of wonder
No holodeck or holograms do I need
Except maybe an imaginary place to ponder
What will this bold year of 2018 hold in store
as the days, weeks and months revolve around the sun?
Will I go where I have never been before
and leave resistance and those damn Borg on the run?
Will I logically follow the path set before me,
the future in my hands, like war to wage?
Yes, I shall lay in a course for a fascinating year
And leave you with one word: Engage!
