28th of December 2020

If I had one wish today
That could come true
It would become a reality,
That comes true for you too

In this, a year
That has brought so much Tragedy
Loss and Unknowing

It can now pass into
The new History books of tomorrow
And, will be shown
From yesterday
This time, of ours
When, the world stood still

And as I,
Stand here before you
In the 2020 wall of fame
I know that people
Will one day think of me, as a Survivor
And you too, if you are reading this today.

It's, indeed, a year of dread; a year rife in colossal chaos, but it pleases God to keep us going, and strong. Thanks for this piece.

Bathe yourself with poetry and let the world go to pieces.

How kind of you to read, I wish you a very happy new year. X

Thank you...Teddy

Hi Teddy, it's indeed difficult to get one's tongue around your poem...lol.
We know that 2020 has been grim, but I myself remembered that, at least in Argentina, 28th. December is the "Day of the Innocents" which commemorates the slaying of the babes by Herod.
I'll return to read again, maybe I'll understand more. Happy New Year, Gracy

wish for you to wish! Not a wish for personal gain or pleasure, but a wish for all of the rest of the world, and especially your friemnds and family. I followed it pretty well, and have no real suggestions on how to improve it, just know that I appreciate your wish for all of us. ~ Geez.
