Another New Year Poem by Deanna Samuels

Another New Year

Another New Year has slipped into our lives
Turning over more quickly as each twelve months go by
We celebrate with champagne and favorite dishes
Making resolves, but often, most hardly finishes
Firework displays move along world time zones
Starting down-under ending way out on Pacific sandstones
Millions see the blaze of lights and flashes
A good feel factor to start New Year bashes
Yet, in the morning has anything changed
From night before, toasts and promises exchanged
Has the World suddenly turned over a whole new leaf
Renouncing debilitating conflicts of wars and defeats
Becoming more conscious of those used and abused
No, the World wakes up to the cold light of day bemused
The fun and thrill of the previous night's revelling done
Now back to same grind, no new revolutionary ideas spun
Or has there, has a new flame been ignited
Out there, somewhere, a spark that grows to be united
Surely, that is the hope of another new year
The hope that a new year brings peace without tear or fear

Aloha Deanna... Cheers and a Happy New Year! I sense optimism? 'peace without tear or fear... well then we need to eliminate the obvious and that is US... a bit harsh but... the stats show this...222 years of armed conflict out of 242 years of existence... and we all have such higher hopes... I do enjoy your thoughts on the possible... All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two
