New Year

Year 2011 dead, its body lying in state
With all its achievements, faults, flaws
Failures, ailments and deprivation's floodgate
Stock market collapsing, euro in Dollar’s claws
Italy, Greece and Portugal in financial mess
China and India vying for superiority
Osama shot dead, how else Obama could impress
His nation clamoring for changed priority

Hosne Mubark dethroned, Gaddafi slain
Syria witnessing blood bath, Middle East in gloom
In Pakistan corrupt leaders reign
Afghanistan proving Nato soldiers doom

New sun of 2012 has buried the past year
Faces of hope are shinning with glow
Flowers of anticipation blowing far an near
The sky dressed with colorful rainbow

The year will see Israel’s expansionism harnessed
From Iraq and Afghanistan  US and Nato forces retreat
Palestinians wounds nursed and dressed
Kashmiris right of self determination with success meet

Nations will see the bride of prosperity usher
Peace and tranquility to prevail and rule
People not with war and killings suffer
Children not to see the bombings of school

New Year brings the promises new
New shine in eyes and new flame in hearts
Roses blushing with the kiss of dew
Hearts pricked with Cupid’s darts

    this verse is very lovely and rather astute. in regards to your comment on galaxy, my knowledge of the solar system was required in school. I enjoyed that part of science, just kinda stuck with me over the years.

    I like how you expressed the past years triumphs and tribulations. Hopefully this year will be better for all of our sake.

    Muhamad This is a nice expression of recapturing the past year and at the same time looking forward on to 2012. Keep sharing. Love Dalila

    Hi Mohammed, This paints the picture of 2011 clearly and also brings hope to the reader for the New Year. We pray that life will be better but I can't see how if our hearts do not change. However I still believe that with God, 'all things are possible'. Thank you much for reading "Grant me Serenity" and leaving your always kind comments and most of all for your kindness in alerting me to the error. Thanks my friend. Love, annalise

    Thank you for your delightful comments, Annalise. How right you are when you say: "We pray that life will be better but I can't see how, if our hearts do not change". This question arose in my mind too. Nevertheless, I allowed my poem to end with hope. If nations try the hopes are attainable with God's blessings. -Mohammad

    you summoned up brilliantly with your opening line the last year and gives birth to a new year with your last stanza. quite devastating, if i might say sir, but in a good way.
