A New Year is coming without fear
As we wait joyfully with no tear
Love’s coming to make us happier
As we aspire to become better

It’s an opportunity to live again
Even though we’ve been beaten by the rain
Another year is coming with love we cannot comprehend
However we try to apprehend

As we now begin anew
Let’s ask Him to fill us with grace like the early morning dew
That in spite of our weak will
Him, we shall serve still

We may do nothing
Just like we have not a thing
And the world may esteem us not
But happiness shall be our lot

The past is a gone history
Let’s begin to live our life’s new story
Helping one another whatever betide
Walking calmly against life’s stormy tide

Wishing you all a happy New Year
Even if you’ve got nothing new to wear
There’s hope in a future
No matter how little is our stature

another bomb-blast
like the wind, it came so fast
trapping us in an old mesh
making our old wounds fresh

when will it end
we are finding it hard to fend
as we live trying never to hate
but that seems to be our fate

we try to make peace
but we end up piece by piece
we know no longer where to start
as we can’t but part

we are in distress
passing through stress
trying to express
our agony, as our injuries  we dress

we lament
lying in torment
as our families are now gone
and we’ve become lone

alone, we are in a crowd
we are no longer proud
we are dying just by lying
with eyes wide open sighing

Someday someway
Things will become as clear as clay
Shining and ever-crescent
Beyond an evanescent

Someday someway
Will be the sun’s ray
Overshadowing all I had to pay
To reach my destined day

Someday someway
Things will come to bare
In a way so rare
That I will no longer fear

Someday someway
I’m waiting for that day
When it will come
Lovingly to my home

Calmly thinking about the unknown
In a sequestered corner
Dark and quiet
Like in dungeon darkness fell

Step by step the years over
Often on the verge of discovery
Meeting one challenge after another
Yet trying all the more

Staying farther away one’s magnificent obsessions
Trying even more
In the realm of the unknown
Inspiring gently those strolling behind

Meeting more challenges on the way
Growing in unconventionality
Becoming better not bitter
Often adding something more


I’m walking the streets looking for the way
The sun’s tearing my shirtsleeves
My shoes is burning out
I’m refusing to believe there’s no way at all

I’m walking and working at what’s worth doing
On the streets I traverse like a wanderer
Looking for the way till nightfall
Through the walk and work my heart yearns for

I’m walking with my dreams in my heart
I don’t leave them behind
Never, less they disappear before I return
As I work and walk searching for the way

I’m walking on the streets looking for the way
I’m searching for my spirit
Through the lines of reality
Trying to find myself everyday

If on the way I flounder
My being goes to Mother Africa so fonder
The mother to my plea hastens
And to my cries, she listens

Mother Africa so tender is black
So gentle, making me happy with no attack
Caring with immense love
Seeming to come with no bitterness from above

My life's been so dull for a time so long
Going after nothing as my own
Mother Africa now fills me softly deep inside
Freeing me from emptiness, gloom and pride

It's time for me to embrace Mother Africa so dear
To cling to her ever so near
Loving her so true, never to ignore
My feelings for her are stronger than ever before

Life is brief
Grudges deprive us of perfect happiness
Laugh as much as you can
Apologize as much as you should
And let go of what you can’t change

Love deeply and forgive quickly
Have no time for regrets
Life is too short to be full of sadness
You have to take the good with the bad

Smile cheerfully when you are sad
Love what you’ve got
And always remember what you’ve had had
Always forgive as you learn from your mistakes
Because life still goes on…

There's music in the moving cars
There's music on the streets of the world
There's music in our homes
There’s music in everything we do
There’s music everywhere on the globe

Music cleanses the soul
Music purifies human understanding
Music inspires all things
Music lifts the spirit beyond the realm of the universe
Music calms all fears

Music is the medicine of the broken heart
Music is the therapy of the disturbed mind
Music is the universal food of the soul
Music is the sweet melody of the heart
Music is the poetry that soothes all pains

When you toil all day
Putting all you have and time
Like a man forever thinking of the world to come
And people frustrate you

When another toils far lesser
Doing nothing but rest all day
Like a man seeing not beyond the day
And people eulogize him

Oh, since the world is not ours to control
Calm we must always be
Working as we walk in whatever direction the world takes us
For love’s sake

Oh, what a world we cannot explain
A world greater than all great sciences
Yet appearing often mysterious
We can’t but remain humble
For love’s sake

If you desire something with all your heart
If life seems purposeless without it
If happily you can give up everything for it
If all other things are secondary, coming only to help it

If with all your capacity
Accompanied with all tenacity
You pursue it with all sagacity
Happy as you sweat for it in all potentiality

If your love for it makes you sometimes look crazy
If no attraction can distract you from it
If faith in it calms all your fears
If hope in it makes you forget all uncertainties
If all your sweats for it never make you unhappy

If all your life, from the cradle to the grave
You toil for it
If all your time, you devote to it
If all your self, you give to it
Then I believe, you can get it

Don’t belittle yourself, weighing yourself in people’s scales
Because you are unique and special in your own way
Don’t leave your dreams deserted, aiming what people think excellent
Because only you really know what’s best for you
You and your Maker

What’s best for you may not be the best for others
But that does not really matter
Whether it looks great or small in the eyes of men
Stick to it
Embrace it
As though without it, your life is worthless

Live your life pursuing what’s best for you
Never wasting your life leafing through the pages of the painful past
Or even the pages of the future yet to come
Don’t be scared that you may sometimes err
Never give up when there’s still life in you
And never be afraid of taking risks
For ‘tis in them that you learn the virtue of courage
Don’t live your life worthless because all around you seems unkind
Love all men like yourself

Life is not a burden
‘Tis a wonderful journey to travel with love
Just know where you are coming from
And know where you are going
Though it may not always be smooth sailing
‘Tis not a do or die affair
‘Tis only a wonderful experience when you see it as wonderful
