Politics are still uncertain.

Thousands still are dying.

The New president offers.

Hope new beginning. 2021Dawns

The Madness never ends it seems.

Consuming us all.

The hope springs eternally.

We will overcome.

35,000 lies.

Fading like ghosts.


2021Dawns

Politicians still lying.

Thousands still dying.

Corona virus spreading.

More corona ghosts.


2021Dawns

There is New hope in the air.

Will politics kill it?


2021Dawns

The news stills scream death and despair.

I turn it all off.

As I wake up at dawn.

I see my sleeping wife.

We wait for the coming fires.

End of the world fears.

Will optimism and love?

Overcome the hate.

Many questions still remaining.

I have no answers.

With hope I leap out of my bed.

Watching TV kills hope.


2021Dawns

Will this be the end of my days?

Will I overcome it?


2021Dawns

2020 hangover.

Like a dark nightmare.


2021Dawns

Politicians still refusing.

To do anything.


2021Dawns

The rich are still getting richer.

The poor remain poor.


2021Dawns

We hope the past will fade away.

Into dark memories.


2021Dawns

I wake up hoping for best.

Dreading worst to come.


2021Dawns

I am still alive thank god.

Filled with love for wife.
