Next year

Next year, may God give us the willingness

To forgive our foes,understand them a little more

And their trend of life that they are leading

Which could have contributed

To their behavior and reactions.


Next year, may God give us the strength

To go through our hard difficulties

And understand that there is always

Some good lesson to learn from pains

For there never was a gain beautiful

Earned without pains.


Next year, may God lead us to the path

Where love reigns with all its might

So that all men live like brothers

And love one another in a spirit

Of understanding and togetherness.


Next year, may all wars end,

May all weapons be buried,

May God make the world

One beautiful nation worldworldwide

Where we all live like human beings

In the real sense of the word.

    A soul-stirring ,fervent prayer for the new year to usher in the need for forgiveness,a sense of brotherhood,and the end to wars.Genuine sentiments,genuine verse.
