A Quiet Desperation

A Quiet Desperation

It’s with a quiet desperation I find
Myself wanting to leave this year behind.
The folks I’ve lost, the tragedy it’s brought,
Solace and peace are what I’ve sought.
May the New Year bloom with positivity and light
And may angels grace my dreams at night.
Saying prayers the future is much less fraught
With nightmares, stress, and all that lot.
Hope is eternal and dreams do come true,

My wish is for brighter tomorrows, not just for me but for all of you too!!

    Hi Kim. Couldn’t agree more that this year has been “one mell of a hess”. All of the negativity, hate speech, lying, and seeming lack of any moral compass by potus and his lapdogs, is so depressing and frustrating. I can’t wait until we have a potus with a soul that understands the enormity and responsibility of the office.

    I still have differences of opinion with Biden, but he gives me the impression he would actually listen to me if I could speak to him face to face. I’m okay with that – we could have a dialogue. That would be impossible with current potus.

    I pray Joe can bring us back to a calmer, more respectful environment.

    • We’ll have to agree to disagree on that one, but I hope we can still be friends!
      I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year and that you eat those black-eyed peas!
