    Farewell to '07

    (Written January 1, 2008 12:10 am)

    I think of the last time
    "Happy New Year!!!"
    We shouted out loud
    Thinking of all the shouts
    That shouted it unanimously
    Undoubtedly dreaming of the new beginnings
    That were beginning at that time so passionately
    So many so massively unaware
    Of the year of pain to be shared
    By all those so ready, so naive and unprepared
    By all that lay ahead in the year 07
    Through all of the hell
    Some may have gained heaven
    Some may have lost leverage
    With God due to sin
    And I find myself wondering which group I reside in
    How I managed to slide in
    To the new year while more worthy beings have been slain
    While more women and men's bodies have been plagued
    By disease and by pain
    Broken hearts and slit vains
    At their own hands
    At the demands of a twisted unforgiving government
    Letters unwritten and flowers unsent
    And all of those who never made it past 07 1/1
    And never got to witness who they may have become
    And now I sit alone at a small grey laptop
    Writing a poem dedicated to all those heart stops
    All those deep meaningful laughs and jaw drops
    To all the broken hearts, and those who can't help but to break them
    Those who love love and all the cynics who hate em
    To all the tears cried, And the shoulders on which they fell
    To all those who felt the need to lie
    And all those who gained hundreds of stories to tell
    This is to all men and women on earth who rung in the new year
    Farewell to 07 because 08 is now here...

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
