New Beginning


How often do we get another chance

to have a fresh beginning

A chance to blot out our mistakes

and change failure into winning.

It does not take a new year

to make a brand new start.

It only takes a deep desire

to try with all your heart.

To live a little better

and to always be forgiving.

To add a little sunshine

to the world in which we are living.

So, never give up in despair

and think that you are through.

For if your blessed to see a tomorrow

you have an opportunity to start anew.
