a new years wish for all …







may this year be kind,

leaving the detritus of the past behind.



may this year be filled with peace,

where humans discard prejudice,
where all hatred may cease.



may this year be gentle and true,

banishing the notions of “us and them”,

by acknowledging the humanity that resides in me and in you.



may this year shower all with the truest wealth,

the bounty of the priceless gift of health.



may this year bring real change, by speaking truth to power to effect real humanitarian aid to all those in need,

knowing that the “other” may be “us” someday, if we do not cast out the demons of selfishness and of unending greed.



may our collective power be on display when we demand a better deal for our home, this planet,

by accepting that this is the home we shall bequeath to those yet to come, to leave a healthy environment for them to inhabit.



may this year and the years ahead be filled with the ideals of a more equitable and just and prejudice-free garden of promise,

where the 99% languish no more in poverty and deprivation,

where human dignity is restored to the countless many,

so that the overwhelming majority of the inhabitants of this earth may truly live, and not just survive and cope,

so that the overwhelming majority of the inhabitants of this earth may finally,

after epochs of injustice,

seize the light and the banner of achievable hope …
