The dawning of the New Year
is a moment when we look 4ward with hope;
we make resolutions 2 improve ourselves,
2 change those weaknesses that
seem 2 make our lives more difficult than
they ought 2 be, or
2 change things that
our friends tell us makes us
disagreeable 2 be around.
When we make these resolutions,
we do it in the hope that
the problems of the year just ended
n that the year ahead
will be a period of health n
prosperity 4 our families, friends, n
Unfortunately, when we look at the
state of the world,
there's no real hope that such wishes
will come 2 pass.
So, 4 those who claim that the world
It probably means;
"My life n the life of the people I know
provided they r living in the Western world.
Let's face it.
People have been trying 2 change the world
4 thousands upon thousands of years.
Doesn't seem 2 work, does it?
At least not as far as
producing any sort of improvement.
Sure, there r those who'll say that
with electricity life is easier,
with modern medicine
we've eradicated many life-threatening diseases,
with automation we r able 2 produce goods
4 more and more people,
with modern agriculture we can feed
many more people than was possible
with the family farm,
n with modern communications
we're in instant contact with the world.
The problem is,
there r still millions who starve every year,
hundreds of thousands who die in hospitals of illnesses
contracted in the hospital
4 some other ailment
or from the drugs meant 2 cure something else.
Millions of people r out of work n
can't afford the "good things" in life,
not 2 mention Mother Earth appears
2 be taking things into her own hands.
series of earthquakes
ringing the planet like a bell.
Globally, human values have been replaced by
military values, n
if these terms r not oxymorons.
We live in a world of science n religion
created by and 4 anthropoids,
4 people who r incapable of
having a critical thought,
who seek their intellectual nourishment
at the breast of Hollywood...
Lastly on a brighter note;
let us live each day 2 the fullest.
My wishes 2 1 n all;
A Joyous Merry Xmas n
A Brand New Year *2007* .
