Dawn of Genesis

A frivolous past was trod The silent requiem plays inside But to consider it as noise Will be injustice to self A crime of denying renewal Denying hope, denying strength But denying history is ignorance Yet regretting it is futile The past is mounted with an iron-clad The future is a sight of the teary eyed Yet the present is the fragile silence of the library One word, one action, even one breath Influences the people around That is why wisdom should be imputed change should be accepted life should be continued We may sojourn in a quiet shade But when our fortitude returns We must continue on Our footsteps are now engraved In the surface of the earth they rest We must make new ones without fear This is my last words "Happy New Year"
