..My New Year..

I sit here alone, pen in hand;
Trying so hard, just to understand;
The ways of this world, and all that I see;
Wondering just how,…it applies to me.

I see fear on the faces, of people I know;
There loosing their homes, with no place to go.
People are hungry, and cold pierces their skin;
With the look of defeat, they know they can’t win.

Now another year’s gone, a new one is here;
But all of those faces, are still full of fear;
When will it end? I heard one man say;
Another replied, it won’t be today.

The bible says, these times would come;
And all should know, where Hope comes from;
It’s not from man, so we could be let down;
It is from God, where Hope is found.

So now that the New Year has finally come;
Ask yourself, “what have you done”…
To honor God,… cause we both know;
That we weren’t put here, just for show..

Make this the year, that you, and I..Make a difference..
