Another year has gone by
We can just recall and sigh
At some of our unpleasant acts
That have besmirched the days gone by.
Our words might have hurt a caring soul
Our deeds, a loving heart
A good person might have turned evil
Due to thoughtlessness on our part.
However this year did go by
Still another year is ahead
It is time to make our resolutions
On the path of truth we have to tread.
We should promise to be nice
And as thoughtful as we can be
And make use of our talents
the problems of others we should see.
Help the poor and the needy
Show kindness to everyone
When Truth and non violence is what we work for
New hope comes with every dawn.
It is up to us to carve our future
Of happiness and peace
Where fruits are filled with juice of joy
and with hope sway the trees.
