Please make me rewrite this poem next year


Blog Posted:1/1/2014 5:34:00 PM
Nothing is New
The date has changed, Calendars and desk pads are rearranged, What else is especially new? Birthdays, weddings, reminder notes? Perhaps hope?  The month has changed, Everything else remains the same, What else is especially new? The season, vacations, new schemes? Perhaps dreams?  Our age has changed, Problems that we overcame, What else is especially new? Our prayers for wars to cease? Perhaps peace?  Nothing has changed, Turmoil and hate remain, Nothing is new...
PLEASE LET US MAKE THIS CHANGE

    Off topic, a boy, only five, has slipped under the nith river here in New Hamburg. His body has not been recovered. Our town is full of blue ribbons, blue ribbons on porches, blue ribbons on trees, on sleeves, on cars... they want closure. What is new? This boy's family has suffered a devastating loss and my community is in pain. I can not stop thinking about him. We are made new each day. He will have no new days... only five... only five... I think I am still sick because I feel this so deeply. I'd rather feel though then be numb, robotic. So, I will try to start anew... remembering that others do not get a chance to change, to grow, even to grow up. I'm so sad.... xoxox Cyndi
