WORD STREAM (30) Welcome Year






I tried to see him in darkness,

 Shivering in cold breeze,

Opened the door at the knock-

And greeted him-'welcome please'


He was bright new YEAR,

Who entered my dwelling- place,

The radiance of divine light,

Was shining on his face.


He promised me all heaven,

To follow him behind-

All happiness, pleasure and joy,

Golden moments, that I rewind.


Terror, hatred, grief, and sorrow,

Calamities and sorrows of a wide range-

He assured to rub- off; only one question-

“ Can yourself in YOU, will change?”



"More than twenty centuries have passed,

His divine message was  simple and clear,

Have you learned that message of humanity?

You only add one new number every year.".



 I ignored that difficult, silly question,

Changing oneself? it is not a game,

Then new year is just the change of digits-

Is old and new year - THE SAME?
