The New Year is here
I will sing a song so dear.
It can be Auld Lang Syne
Or another one we love to sing.
Will we keep those resolutions?
Think of more solutions?
To our own problems
Or solve world’s social conundrums?
Write, read and believe
That truth, beauty, and justice will lead.
But winter cold does seep
Into our bones so deep.
Woolens, socks, blankets
Scare away the dark dampness.
Our dear lives pass so quickly
Living life can be risky.
Fear, violence, loneliness
We cannot accept meanness.
Fight hard against the darkness
Remember the light and happiness.
Find peace in self and neighbors
Lift spirits-do not be frightened.
Spring, rebirth and solace
Will happily call us.
So do not dwell on fear
Let life, celestial light be held so dear.
