Look And See What I See
We made it to another year
What a rough and very hard last year for so many
I am blessed
To be here and share
I usually talk about my day to day activities
The odd and the unusual events that happen
The funny and the outrageous
In the process, I try to include the two most important things in my life
My wife and our cat Charlotte
I do it through a vehicle that I find most interesting
Writing my heart out
Expressing my littlest whim to my biggest dream
I try to include my audience that reads my story/poems
The name I refer to my own imaginary word called stoems
We are already six days into the new year
I often wonder how we can make this year better than last year
How we as people can show a little more love and compassion for other people
Many people want to change and create a whole new me
I want to do the opposite
More and much more of the same thing
I try hard to be kind
To offer a helping hand
To anyone who needs it
Always trying to show my wife my never-ending love and support
To take care of our cat
Then to enjoy any free time
With my family and friends
I am not here to solve the worlds biggest problems
I love to create and dream
Sending blessings throughout the New Year and every day afterward
Through these creations maybe we can make wonderful changes
It may be only a small step in the right direction
Once again if people aren't ready for change
The change will never happen
I hope we all can continue with good health and prosperity
In ways that will spread throughout the world
So you will continue to see my writings
With my personal touch of the bold and beautiful
Thanking you for all your support and unselfishness
Making my world a very special place

Muhammad Rizwan I think somehow you have been doing it all along. Keeping strong and helping as you go. People can live all over the world. People can also help so many if they put their mind to it. In a strange way we can help people we don't even know. If more people help other people just from the kindness of their heart. I am sure the world can be covered from one side to the next. A smile goes a long way. A laugh can be remembered for years to come. A happy life is not something just in storybooks. It is real. It is great. It is discovered every day. Bt everyone who tries and is willing to care. Thank you so much. Off to work. Have a fabulous night.

Chrish Canosa My thoughts touch many directions. I try to focus on one area at a time. Life doesn't always work that way. Some days it is everything at once. Then other times it feels like nothing. My wife and I keep trying to find a balance. It is good to have someone who looks out for you. I do the same for her. We find ways to make it work when it seems impossible. You just have to keep trying and pretend giving up doesn't exist. Thank you time and time again for all your support and encouragement. You are well beyond your years. Listening can be so much fun. Remembering is a whole other story. At least we try and when we fail which we do often we are back at it again and again. Here is to you. For doing a great job!!! Growing up in a world of uncertainty. Making your dreams come true. Respecting others while keeping sight of your own personal dreams wants and wishes. Stay safe and I can't wait to years from now we laugh at what we had to deal with and now we are both doing so much better. Only time will tell. Don't rush it. Enjoy it! Enjoy all your family and friends and even be thankful for those people you don't like. They make you think and try harder. They push you in directions you would never go. Thank you most of all for being a wonderful friend. Happy writing.

By helping our families and friends we can create a chain to make everyone understand that we can make this year more better than the previous one.
As you have mentioned in your poem love and by devoting time we can do it.

It was a hurtful farewell for too many. It was also a soul shaking year. Thanks for the awesome (as always)consistent optimism welcome address of the year!!! No matter how challenging it is to you, you always show up teaching us :-)
Thank you so so much for all the takeaways.
An awesome day to you and your wife! Lots of love from pH.

Louise Powles I thought I seen the light. Then after looking again it was light leading to another tunnel. Oh well. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a lovely day.

It has been a very tough year indeed. I hope there is light at the end of the tunnel now. That was a lovely poem.
