New year, a new day.

    New year, a new day.


Yesterday is gone, today is here.

Last year, big changes.
Bloody life got twisted-up and turned around.

Hard to tell, if am doing right or doing wrong?

Johnnie back at the Stray Cat Inn,
he ain't praying, he ain't crying and he ain't dying.

Just living.

Last year wasn't so bad,
my feet touched the California dirt and
I walked into the Pacific.
I drank some whiskey for Hemingway on the Monterey pier.

I took grandchildren to Lake Huron and
I pray for peace at Port Austin.
I took baby Jaden to his kindergarten and I watched him gain some confidence.


I know life isn't easy,
must make time for the family,
for laughter and for travel.

Johnnie isn't crying, he isn't dying.
Just living another day.

A new year is here,
old man, must keep smiling and going forward.
He must have patience and be kind.

Old world won't stop and we must go forward.
Not complaining, not worried,
Just doing what I can.

Living in the moment. Being kind and caring. Love of family and moving forward. That's the way to do it Dancing Coyote. Your photograph of you and your grandchildren spending time together shows you have your priorities in the right order. We have to count our blessings when so many have nothing. Beautiful words and sentiment.

I absolutely enjoyed reading this poem. The fact that there is what feels like a "continued enjoyment of life"-feel from it. Inside this poem reveals wisdom, and an appreciation for what some people would call the "simple-things" in life. Even those are worth enjoying, "Old world won't stop and we must go forward."


Hope this New Year is awesome for you, and filled with many blessings.

Nicely done, encapsulating your story in a poem . One minor suggestion: confidence as opposed to confident.:)
