Peace for 2015

by SHIRLEY MAYA TAN

Peace

Let us embrace the pain,
That stinging taste of loss,
For life brings equal measure
Of both joy and suffering.


Perhaps it is foolish,
To only wish for the good
Without bearing the bad.

It is human to want pleasure
Without paying the price.
It is humane to learn and rise.
A wiser, stronger and kinder generation
We will strive to be
As truth will always reveal.

In sickness or in health,
In poverty or wealth,
Life changes from moment to moment,
The plot twists and turns with eternity,
What remains is our shared humanity.

We are one and the same.

Wishing all a very fulfilling and joyous New Year!
