Goodbye to the old Welcome to the New Another year has passed Happy New Year to you! So much has happened As always, good and bad Let’s remember the good Forget the bad, it’s so sad Some lost their house and job Some died, some were born Others barely hanged on In this world we are torn Gone is hope for tomorrow Prosperity and a better job Economists are baffled Politicians corrupt All of their promises gone In the midst of all of this Hate seems to be the new
trend So many lives taken Wars that never end Heroes are few and far in
between The many that risk their
lives We will never meet or have
seen They are our sons and
daughters Our brothers and sisters Our mothers and fathers That lost their lives For peace and justice As we welcome a New Year Let us ponder Happiness and Peace yonder!
