SEARCHING FOR THE NEW YEAR……..
Months into the New Year!
We are still hurtling into the arena
of discovery and expectation,
of love and anticipation,
what will our stars foretell this year?
Will we be successful?
Will we be free of an illness?
Will we? Will we?
The same query goes on every year,
how often do we retrospect
on the year gone by?
Did we do good?
Did we make someone happy?
My eyebrows knit
and my big enthusiastic eyes almost squint
in despair as I look back on the year gone,
I find pages of my book incomplete
as they flap in the wind to display
dark words of vanity, anger, hatred
sparkling white pages tainted
with the ink of negative thought and deeds,
a bundle of hopes torn to shreds
by a year well begun but lost midway
in the daily humdrum of life.
It’s a blossoming year now,
there is still time
to pull our chins up,
tuck in good thoughts
and begin afresh.
