New Year – Letter to the Editor

New Year Wish

Even a slight
Small and insignificant
Can cause so much pain
Send blood rushing through our veins
Keeping us awake at night
Wondering how to sooth our wounded pride

Why is it so hard to be kind?
To forgive and forget
Knowing what we know
That vengeance
only begets violence
and leads to bloodshed


Still we push
For the proper or improper reaction
To someone’s Intentional or unintentional action
With fists, knives, guns or worse

Why let chaos and insanity
Rule the future?
Let’s bring back sanity and
An overwhelming sense of humanity

May the new year – 2024
Usher in an era
Of peace, joy, and prosperity.
