Change for the New Year

Here I sit,
With a wish to change the future,
With a long list of things,
All of which I don’t want to see in the New Year.

Beginning with the dirty world,
I want to change the face,
Remove the litter and the garbage,
And color it with blooms and blossoms.

There will glow the world,
And glimmer in the color of birth,
I will know the good in my thoughts,
And I will move to the next member of my list.

The dirt shifts from the surface,
And now I see the layers underneath,
The hearts of the leaders, which
Are dirtier than the surface, completely rotten.

I want to change their hearts,
And make them see the plight of their citizens,
Make them understand their wrongs,
And remove the greed and corruption.

Cleaner will become their hearts,
And noticed will be the griefs,
And sorrows of the mango people,
Quite many, surely not few.

I have gone a bit slow,
To tell the two first griefs,
But the next many need immediate action,
So I must rhyme my song piece.

I want them all working,
And earning their own living,
Independence is all I want for them,
And that is quite a rare gem.

No one should remain poor,
Wish they were all rich,
Everyone self satisfied,
And no one living in the dirty ditch.

I want them all well read,
And I want this real soon,
Not for more readers of my blog,
But being literate is everywhere a boon.

Hungry shall none remain,
I wish for everyone to be fed,
Food must reach them all,
And from hunger shall no one be pronounced dead.

Crime is overtaking us,
As it strikes in every single blow,
Wish it would end as well,
And the red would not flow.

Divide exists within us,
And inequality as well,
I wish for equality to prevail,
Or else it will make life horrible, a living hell.

There is loads to add in this,
Which I cannot do,
I must stop and think,
As there is not a person I can take this to.

It cannot wait any more,
So I must begin alone,
I will begin by washing myself, the dirtiest soul,
To set rolling developments stone.
