New Year

I’ve had insults, pain and slights
Life has shown me such delights
Sometimes I’ve stood prepared to fight
Sometimes I’ve turned away

Monotony of day to day
Where little matters anyway
Just entertainments on display
For whom we cannot say

A new year waiting at the door
Those lesser gods we might implore
To give us what we’re yearning for
Before they go away

Despite this past we will forget
Our hopes are strong and vital yet
We’re thankful for the friends we’ve met
On this, our new year’s day
