7th APRIL 2015 - Vol.XXXVIII No.018

New year but...

I WOKE up early this morning to start my busy day

I bumped into people at home and work where they say

Wish you all the best of luck in the coming year

I froze my face and said sorry mind my ear

They said 2012 is reaching an end very soon

I said it went too fast like a night of the full moon

I asked them do you feel the same as I feel

Or is it just me overestimating what is real

They said no, you have to wake up and let's celebrate

Join the happiness with us before it is too late

I wondered what is the point of this party

Are we really happy or is it just a formality

How can you expect me to be happy and thrilled

While my precious dream is still not fulfilled

It is hard to pretend and distribute fake smiles

Since this dream is far away within million miles

Their faces were confused with question and doubt

Asking me which dream are you talking about

I said this dream is not only in my mind

It's in yours and theirs, a dream for all mankind

They got more puzzled and said tell us please

I was not sure should I smile or cry, It's peace
