New Year, New Yearning
A new year bestows hope
by John Sensele
Promises new pages
Sliding on a salient slope
Where the wise earn deserved wages.
A new year erases mad memories
Folks would rather forget
As they pen in their dainty diaries
‘Don't entertain in the new year a regret secret.'
A new year opens vistas
Teeming with profound possibilities
For folks to metamorphose into stars
Provided they make good the propulsion probabilities.
A new year affords a chance
To grace, bless and to assess
The right wrong balance
In an effort to forestall any further stress.
A new year swings into action
An opportunity to recast lives
Into the right direction devoid of malefaction
As the dawn of hope arrives and thrives.
A new year whips sorrow
Into submission and humiliation
So long as society seizes tomorrow
To spread affection, benediction, restoration and cooperation.
