A Year In Review

I find myself numb
Unable to reflect
Unable to conceive the
Future & “Auld Lang Syne.”

Conflicted, instead by the palpable
Soundtrack of life marked by
Dwindling weeks
Hours, minutes

Non too swift, 2017 will end,
Yet will the miasma linger
In this overflowing landfill?
Blurred by chaos, how long
Must we remain indifferent,
Divisive in our civility?

I choose to do my best, to do
My part & remain hopeful
Humanity will follow suit.
