The Next Ten Years

When we look back over the last ten years,
we wonder where did this strange decade go.

Did you fill it up with sadness or cheer,
and do we measure the way we did grow?

Living starts to make a little more sense
though the world may have left us behind.

Newer technology may make us tense,
and society may have grown less kind,
but we have learned how to come together
within our own little community.

Gathering ourselves around each other
will make next decade a thing of beauty.

It is hard not to think what came before
when we knock upon this milestone’s door.
