Just a few minutes and it will be mid night
A bloody end giving way to ever hopeful light
The year of turmoil, should pass away in three minutes
An unborn in calendar’s womb… about to emit
Pray for good will, peace and everlasting resolve
The positives stand across the timed boundary
And I write this as the clock strikes
And a new year has born!
