2014: A year of heartaches,
happy moments, discoveries!
Wonderful novels, surreal,
crazy paintings, art-world.
So near, then faraway...
Lost independence fight
lost hopes never to return!
I'm happy it's over.
2015: A year full of hope,
Tears will be wiped
Room for happiness
Most of all for love.
Without love I'm nowhere...
Sincerity, honesty and love
I'll be finding them all,
Even if well hidden somewhere...
2015: will be my year to shine,
Spreading happiness to world
Smiling to Life together,
Embracing fate when
The angels are calling...
I want to mean a lot
to someone who will mean
the worlds to me!
The skin of my colour,
shouldn't be discriminated.
I'm what I am, and proud of it!
I won't paint my world dark.
I had dark days,
I am now in need of bright ones.
I'll add colour to my paintings,
love to my songs...
I'll recite poems of hope
and expectations and love.
I will sing ballads of olden times,
smile endlessly.
My mandolin has only happy tunes.
I will cry if I feel like when
I remember the happy moments
with nostalgia. I will only remember
the happy moments.
I will remember you often,
I wish I could leave you behind in 2014.
Yet I can't, carry you to the new year
only remembering our happy moments,
not the intolerance, not the sadness,
not the selfishness.
2015 here you are and here I come...
