The year that was, the year that will be

Oh what a year it was, once again

Where multiple hits converged to cause pain

A heartbreaking war, needless indeed

Economies that continued to bleed

Inflation that out of control spiraled

Energy in short supply in the world

Paucity of workers in the workforce

Unpredictable weather events, of course

Violent protests against governments oppressive

Viruses with which we were learning to live..

So many things that did not seem right

So many battles we’ve had to fight..

*

On the other hand, a much better year 2022 has been

The light at the end of the tunnel we have seen

At least where the pandemic is concerned

Life has to some semblance of normalcy returned

New challenges are here, but we have solutions creative

Post-pandemic, riskier lives we are willing to live

*

We go into 2023, with wide open eyes

Hopefully we have learnt some lessons, are a bit more wise

Let wars, inflation, energy crises end in the coming year

Let’s have a new world order, where we live without fear
