*** When The Clock Strikes Twelve *** Poem by ANJALI SINHA

*** When The Clock Strikes Twelve ***

Rating: 3.6

When the clock strikes twelve
new year 2009 is born
with gaiety’s morn,
new chapter is opened
old book is shorn

Our future is carried
into another new year,
with hopes,
that this new year 2009,
will bring in cheer,
will bring in no fear
slough off tortures
no more massacres
no more tears..

My prayer to the lord

Lead us into 2009
with your power and strength divine,
inundate our hearts, with truth and light,
props us with your immeasurable might,
make us not breakers, or crashers on the shore,
but like torches to flame and brighten us more

Make us like beacons
like the stars and the moon,
who selflessly burn
so that others may turn
their lives into bright lanturns,
not in Cimmerian darkness
and sleep in the arms of Morpheus.

Forgive our enemies,
and make them see,
a peace that is lasting.
Let this siloloquy
not be an ephemeral,
but everlasting joy
for all to see
throughout 2009

Cure our hatred,
break our hauteur
end our factions,
and bend our pride,
to your control

Oh Lord! ! ! ! break this conundrum
Guerdon us with opulent joys
Of health, wealth and happiness,
this is my cry.

A pledge like response in Magyar(Hungarian-national language) as sung in the number Magyar Vandor Ha itt maradnál, nem indulnék még én sem, Ha nem indulnál, nem lenne érkezésem... Hová is mennék, hová is lennék egyedül én? Nélküled nem kell útlevél. Az otthon ott volt ahol bejártunk mindent százezerszer már... s apánkat kértük, hogy vegye... It is the resonance of love and life through pangs of hatred and fangs of death.I dedicate this midway 2009 on behalf of her to all poemhunter dwellers.
