Happy New Year!

Time closes on another year
To collect events for history,
Entwining one’s personal fear
Amongst generations’ mystery.
Will this year’s days be fulfilled
With what we focus upon?
Or will so many more be killed,
Repeat faults of Miss Saigon?

U.S. Election made headline news,
First African American succeeded.
Automaker’s appeal not refused
Despite change is what we all needed.
Harrowing fight until his death
A father’s advice to his children.
Waited and read 'til he took his last breath
How we’ll always remember his sermon.

Gas prices rise beyond understanding
Foreclosures steal media attention.
Society sick then starts demanding
While we watch our dwindling pension.
Let’s shut the door on broken promises
Don’t look back, but to the future.
Work until hands are full of calluses
Hugs and kisses, priceless sutures.

May 2009 bring you health and happiness. Cheers to your dreams!
