The tide of 2015 crept in
and it wasn't as chilly as I expected.
The air temperature is though
a brisk 13c.
What does the new year have in store for us?
Shall our world become hospitable?
Will argument and disagreement continue?
Can we raise our standard of living?
Should social well-being be common place?
Drowning in a sea of possibilities.
Awake from this distorted dream!
External displays of internal fears.
Demons there be - saved for our children.
Living out our lives in fear and social unrest
because we live a lie fostered by religion and politics.
I pray for our eyes to see,
Our hearts to feel,
Our intentions to be honorable,
Our lives to feel and be secure,
Our neighbors to be friends,
Our collective creating the best humanity has to offer,
To offer those blessings without charge or conditions,
To empower everyone,
To expect this outcome.
