Another hour, another day
Another year has slipped away.
Memories were made, good and bad
Sometimes happy, sometimes sad.
2016 will soon disappear
As we greet 2017, a brand new year.
Another chance to change, another new start
Let love, joy, and peace flood your heart.
Happy New Year everyone. May peace, love, and joy follow you wherever you go.

Fuzzy socks you are so soft
And warm against my peau (rhymes with go – French for skin)
Staircases lead me up or down,
Wherever I need to go.
Fuzzy socks and carpeted stairs
Should never really meet.
A barrier should be worn betwixt the two
And fit snugly on the feet.
For when fuzzy socks and carpeting join
They become a little slick.
And once headed down the stairs
Your foot will suddenly slip.
Gravity and inertia will gladly
Join the fun.
As fuzzy socks and carpeted stairs
Come together as one.
As hard as you will clutch
and find something on which to hang,
You’ll ultimately end at the bottom of the stairs
With a loud and ungraceful bang.
The preceding poem is based on a true story which happened only an hour or so before the text was written.
Pretend you live in a world where
Empathy for your neighbour is
Above all, and where
Compassion and love is the weapon
Even in the face of adversity.
Life would be so different here.
Our hearts would be full,
Values and morals would be important, and
Everyone would feel safe.
However, this fantasy is not real.
Our lives and freedoms are at risk, but we can
Persevere and good can triumph.
Evil has no foothold with peace, love, and hope.
