A New Year Greeting
As I sit here pondering the past
A year now at an end
I see hope ahead, for I’m an optimist
The evil and the hate that we see today
Will like falling leaves from a tree one day blow away
In the eyes of the young, I see a sparkle of the innocent
A spirit of change
New energy, new beliefs, a world that can be
For the future is in them, not the old who lost their way
I see that like new seeds planted in the land just before the fall
They’ll rise upon the new spring sun, blooming in the wind
A new day will bring together all those torn apart
Will bridge the gap of our misunderstandings
To see what can be done, when we all come together
For united we are stronger, then the chasm that divides us
The young will bring forth a renew of fortitude to find the answers in new ways, answers that old skeptics could not see
A New Year brings a hope; anew for me and you that somehow we finally learn that the answers to words of God are simply clear.
Love all, and forgive those who have done wrong: help all who needs a hand, share what bounty that you have.
Turn away from anger and hate; find a way to care
Remember the Garden of Eden, never went away, it is all around us, we’re just too blind to see it. So open your eyes to the truth look and you’ll find it!
