A New Leaf

image source

Another year has come and gone,

and a new one is upon us.

As time marches forward,

and we celebrate and ponder,

this mystery called life,

let us not forget the

impact that we have,

on this earth we live on,

and the people that surround us.

Though we all have our own path,

we all walk a common road.

We are all here on this earth,

to help each other out.

This is a simple lesson to learn,

but the hardest one to follow.

Greed and hate seem to have

taken over, and left only

loss and sorrow.

But a new dawn is upon us,

this you can be sure.

All the greed and pain can

be overcome,

if we all work together,

and help our fellow man.

There has always been peace

and light in this land,

but lately it's been hiding,

waiting for a new day to dawn,

and all God's people to follow.

So, lets all turn a new leaf

in this coming new year,

and all walk in peace and love,

and remember why we are here.

    "This is a simple lesson to learn,
    but the hardest one to follow."
    How true! If all the people learn to follow it the world would be a much better and a beautiful place for all of us.
    Thanks for sharing such a lovely poem.
    Best wishes to you for the new year...May you get all that you wish for yourself!

  4. let's say less good words when our nature does not accept a lot of civilized stories; when we are still animal but sec by sec try to imagine we are not. I don't know why but I do like to imagine as well...
    happy new year!

  5. Hi, ur poetry is really beautiful and mind-blowing, I think u should promote it, I knew a website called for advertising and marketing, they are offering very unique features with cheap prices. They will promote ur blog through all over the network, all u have to do is choose ur pack & pay affordable price and rest leave it to blogerzoom advertising team to promote ur blog in every network. And see how u enjoy a lot of traffic while blogging. Finally happy new year to u and ur family...

  6. Warm and lovely sentiments, Dave! Have a Happy New Year!

  7. A lovely sentiment. I also have a blog devoted to peace, poetry and inspiring quotes. I have found that the words of wisdom offered in poems reach the hearts of troubled souls more efficiently and deeply than with any other method.

    Best wishes for a happy and peaceful 2010.
