A New Year's poem...
2016! It's the new year, it's coming!
So play a loud horn, dance a jig, do some drumming!
Let's cry out for peace, drop the hate, the pretenses,
let's hug up the world,smile some smiles,mend some fences.
There's no need to divide by religion or race,
not by gender, or status, so tied to a place.
The time is now here to remember we're one!
We're all here on this planet, "us" under the sun!
We all need the same things - food and home and good friends,
we're all searching for love, the kind that never ends.
So, let's hope, live in joy, work for peace everyday,
and then nap, take a pause, spend some time - rest and play!
