A new year hope

The old year has finally ended
And another has been born
But the infant must face the turmoil
That the old one left behind
Unsolved horror and tragedy
Greed of the corporate world
The hunger for profits
Third world growth that sacrifices
What is the cost of power
The politics of protocols
That slow up changes to be made
For the betterment of all on planet earth
No child should die from hunger
No one should die in pain
The cries of those alone
A cardboard box home for some
A garbage bins selections
The Price mother nature pays
The new year needs a hand
From just ordinary men
Who will stand tall and be counted
The voices of millions dead cry out
Give us peace for the world
A new year hope
Begs for our attention
