Reality Soon Sets In…2017




The New Year is at hand

It begins with new expectations

Some reflect and resolve to do better

Others look anxiously toward the future

The beginning of the year is like a corner

As you reach the curve, the mind wonders

Will things change around the bend?

Will I, this year, see a new trend?

The feeling of joy is everywhere

An almost brand new atmosphere

People expect that things will happen

Now, that the old year has come to an end


But, reality soon sets in

As the new year slowly begins

slowly the magic of the moment fades

like the sun in the evening shade


With a new year comes a new opportunity

To create what you want your life to be

Wake up, there's no magic, it is very clear

You will have to do better than last year 


A Poem of Hope: I will rise

tyle="text-align: left;">
I pen this poem of hope:I will rise

Though, life struggles may get me down

And the burden and strife

 May bend me to the ground


I will rise, if only but slowly

From the pain of life blows

Dealt on my mind and my body

Life wounds I bear, but only God Knows


I will rise, even when my body seems 

Not to obey what my spirit is saying

The self-defeating thoughts that creep

In, the tricks my fickle mind is playing


I will rise, from the depths of my misery

Despite the struggles, I will overcome

How I do it amazes even me

For, it is not I who is responsible for my victory


I will rise, because I refuse to be

A victim of circumstances or society

I will rise because I, with the strength of the

 Almighty, have been rescued from what I should not be
