Some plead guilty
Of causing disasters
But they beg when it's too late-
When no one's watching.
People fretting over money losses,
yelling in court over who has which child.
Many crying over dead ones,
While a plank of wood floats with a new
stream of water.
The water may be contaminated,
But can bring hope along for many.
Not in the area,
All happening at once.
Different ones for different individuals.
thought of what is important for a moment may help your future
Forget the holidays,
That was when the gifts were in
Think about the new year,
What's going to make it different,
How you're going to use it
Or for those around you.
Being useful is never bad,
Thinking of someone can make him glad.
Maybe the seed for a new beginning.
It's all in your hands,
Something like that.
