New Year's Acrostic - Poem by Steven Shoemaker

Remember last year how
Easy it was to shear
Some inches off your rear?
Or spend less than you make?
Lie less and never fake?
Use better words, not worse?
To read the best new book?
Inquire instead of curse?
Or tried to make your name?
Next year will be the same.

    New life, dreams, love and world
    Ever open to you my dear friends
    World will be everyone's home
    Years of saddest pursuits will be fulfilled
    Energy level of all will increase
    All will come together to do best for all
    Right attitude will keep all right ever
    Success will be sure to all from now on
