Jan 1st 2017

Will the new year bring in
new dreams and new hopes
as bright as the Christmas tree
to lighten the weary souls
as deep as thousands of incarnations old?

The memories of 2016
are merely patches or spots
in the infinite timeline
however beautiful they were
or painful as they made you endure

The enlightened voice is still calling out
from over two thousand years past
I listened and liberated myself
to become as light as a snowflake
twirling in the air

Let’s empty 2016
And paint the new year with a brightest color
you could ever visualize
And start the new year fresh off
as it’s rolling in.

Happy New Year!

Jan 1st 2016

The New Year’s day
Is filled with fireworks
Rainbow lights and confetti
Meeting old friends and warm wishes

The ghosts of the past
Are fortunately far away
Yet the ghosts of the future
Miserably keep haunting me

Where are my new year’s resolutions?
Where are my colorful dreams?
Long gone are the days
I thought I could control my body

Let them explode –
Thoughts about old age and sickness
Let them transform into new kinds 
Of energy and dreams for me.

Happy New Year 2016!
