New Year, New Day

By Lorraine J. Anderson

New Year,

New chances.

New attitude,

New times.

 

But resolutions break,

And time wanders on,

People leave and arrive,

What’s left is you.

 

And when you go,

What’s left behind?

Did you live for yourself, or —

Did you make a difference?

 

New year,

New day,

New chances,

New attitude.

 

Go,

Love your neighbor as yourself,

Go,

Be the difference.
