A Year’s End Of Questions

Filed under: Poetry — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — migueltio @ 10:01 am

A mystery in front
of me as the year ends.

Will violence linger
or will police and citizens make amends?

Will the soldier be
ambushed by the ally he or she defends?

Will the neighbor by abused
by the acquaintance he or she befriends?

Will the elder be robbed
by the relative to whom he or she lends?

Will the politician really practice
the civic duties that he or she only pretends?

Will the child receive the love
From the parent upon whom he or she depends?

Will the good citizen receive a smile
from the one to whom a hand he or she extends?

These and many other questions
distract the eyes
cloud the skies
as lower
as earlier
December’s sunlight bends.

Here’s to a New Year of Hope and Happiness!




  1. Let’s hope they will both embrace peace!

    Have a blessed 2015!
