I wrote this poem for the Dayton Christian Scribes newsletter and received compliments so thought I would share here with you as well. Enjoy!
Looking back upon the past year,
brings to mind much sorrow and cheer.
Changes and challenges abound
as escalates, the rising sound
of crowds watching the New Year ball
glittering as confetti falls.
Gain and loss have again become
the scale we measure value from.
As this one dies and this one thrives,
we reevaluate our lives,
checking if we have what it takes
to prevent repeating mistakes.
Perhaps this is the promised year
we step out and win, without fear.
