Another New Year, Another New Beginning? - Poem by David Whalen

Another new year!
Another new beginning?

Will we get this one right?
Will we have learned from the last one?
Will we treat our kids better?
Will they be healthier and better educated?
Will we be more prudent, save more money?
Will we even have a job?
Will we keep the one we have?
Are we gonna stop smoking?
Are we gonna start dieting?
Are we gonna start exercising?
Are we gonna stop watching so much TV?
Are we gonna walk more and stop so much driving?
Will we help someone who has less?
Will we be thankful for what we have?
Will we renounce war?
Will we live a little longer?
Will we want to?
Are we gonna venerate our elderly?
Are we gonna respect others?
Are we gonna forget about someone’s color?
Are we gonna be friendly?
Will we give hugs whenever we can?
Will we read more?
Will we try to learn something new?
Will we vote this year?
Will we act as Christians even if we’re not religious?
Will we try to buy American made products?

Are we and Will we
There’s a lot more I’m sure you could add
Will you, or are you going to be doing any of these this year?
They’re all desirable, most require little money or effort.
They’re truly things that you can do…for you and for others.

Another new year!
Another new beginning?

    nice write david... there is a part here which says that 'will we act like christians even if we're not religious'

    well, i'm a christian. I'm not religious though some other Christians are. but hey, don't get me wrong about this comment. It's Christmas! BE happy! be filled of peace!

    warm greetings to you dear poet!
