Its a new year
The old year is gone
And another starts anew,
Resolutions are being made
So many things to do.
Last year is no more; it is in the past,
Try to move on in the new year
So you can have a fair weather forecast,
Think not of the bad things that happened in the previous year,
Look forward to the future,
Come on lets meet up there.
Last year is gone; there is not even a trace,
But passed memories will be kept
Locked in our mental space,
We should all thank God, that we made it alive to be here,
So open your eyes and realise!!
ITS A NEW YEAR!!!
This time you can cover a new beginning,
Forget your loss yesterday,
For today you will be winning,
This year is last years solution,
And I aim to be a better person this time
So whats your resolution?
Try to think positive this time around,
Imagine you are a bird
And dont anchor yourself to the ground,
Tell yourself you are going to be what you want to be,
Imagine youre the wind,
So wild ... but free!
Free to choose your own destiny this year,
Ill walk with you hand in hand
So you can overcome that fear,
Ill walk with you and tell you my story,
Because last year I was quiet and I fell short of glory.
10, 9, 8, 7, 6
Count your blessings and work on what needs to be fixed
If youve never hugged someone, let it be the first this year,
Say hi, hold a hand, cry,
Look life in the face and stare.
With that being said, means you should live on
And be the brightest flare,
And so the countdown continues,
5, 4, 3, 2, 1,
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
One of the strongest persons you will ever meet.
He taught me to be focused, be determined,
Strive to be happy, he said.
Pray. Trust in God,
Always be true to who you are.
Represent your best self.
Then strive for better and worry not he always said,
For I am always with you, the saying never left my head.
He carefully moulded this fine work of art,
This essence you treasure and admire today.
He continues to support and guide me,
I lift my hat to him, I salute this gentleman.
On this very special day.
He explained that everyone was important,
Especially when they did not understand it that way.
Service before self he always said,
Pay it forward to enjoy better days ahead.
He taught me to quickly pay my bills,
Respect Ceaser, even give him credit where its due.
Watch my reputation, keep my attitude in check.
For it takes my lifetime to build it,
And can be ruined forever in only a second.
Embrace honesty and humility, especially when its hardest to do.
For that is the armour in my character,
That will speak loudly so I dont have to.
I dont know where he learnt these things,
Or why he thought it necessary to show me.
But he taught me to truly value life, even when it seemed unkind
That my biggest and most powerful asset
Was the way I could use my mind,
Daddy, I salute you,
I appreciate who and how you are.
I thank you for everything.
Today and forever, you are a star.
Simone P. Graham
Beating ... beating ... beating
Walking away from me
From decades-old wisdom
You have exercised no control
Over the wanderings
Of this pound of flesh
Racing ... racing ... racing
Stripping the likes of a
Mistress desperate for her lover,
You have disrobed all good sense.
And have drowned yourself
In the volatile, murky
Waters of matters concerning you
Pounding ... pounding ... pounding
Tearing through ice-hard walls
Of the sturdy fortress
We had built for protection,
You have crashed into
The de-tenderised chest
Of a more composed other
Spinning ... racing ... pounding
Skipping through pages
Written by spellbound hands
And enlightened minds
It is clear to see the reason
For your heart-shaped frenzy
So I will follow you ...
And fall in love.
