What Hail The New Year

What hail the new year?
What hellfire be rained upon us?
We enter into the new generation,
This one worst then the last.

What bring the new year?
What horrors shall we release upon ourselves?
We enter into a new age of sin,
This one worst then the last.

Drink in the good feelings,
They won't last long,
It's just another yesterday when tomorrow comes,
This time it's not temporary.

But then if I'm just white noise,
When will the words take effect?
When will the world take off its mask,
And reveal itself as the devil it may yet be.
This time proven to be permanent.

This whole time,
This whole celebration,
This whole new age,
Is all a load of lies,

Make a resolution,
Get too drunk to remember it,
Blow your confetti and smoking guns,
This new year it's bigger and better,
And breaks down two times as fast.

And when will it finally end?
When will people start to listen,
Before they follow blindly,
It's too bad it's too late,
It's too bad we're a broken race.

After all, we wouldn't want to poison anyone else,
Let's keep our drunken secrets for other drunken ears,
It's not going to be easy, but I will never buy into commercialism.

And what do I know?
At so young an age,
Let's scoff at the kid,
Who acts so highly,
But then what if he's right?

Nothing a good murder couldn't cure,
Hey, maybe two,
After all its the new year,
And it's time to instill new fear,

And if i speak this aloud,
Then it's all over,
But i'm not the doomed one,
And if i am, I have failed,
And if i am, I deserve it.

I will accept fate,
And will not disguise shame,
Or drunkenness,
Or lust,
With another celebration,
That's lost to the monstrous wind.

Every Person is Unique
People are amazing things, They don't have fins or even wings. But what makes them amazing is that each one is unique, And even though good looks are what some seek, I go by the person, not whether they are chic. Every person is different and has a personality, That comes with their own special mentality. Whether they are short or tall, To-die-for handsome or ugly as a wall, Just remember this one life technique; Every person is unique.

They said I’m so greedy They said I’m so unfair It’s only sex that I want And feelings I don’t care They said I’m not happy If I couldn’t stick to one They said my love is empty And sincerity is none You just don’t know what it feels like To be called unjust To be called restless And a slave to lust Who are you to judge me On how I should live I am also human Who sin and forgive They said I play safe They said I’m a coward I switch when I like it And get all the reward They said I’m confused But that is not so I am just free to choose Love is for everyone I know.

Inaction and Reaction
Posession This demon's taken control of me Depression I curse myself and my incapability Regression I wish, I hope, to go back to the day Dispassion When I didn't care about it, either way Displacement Why are my thoughts so out of place? Abasement Mayhap it's someone else with my face Chastisement Punish me, now, for I spit and I curse Excitement It feels so bad, and I want it to be worse Searching I look for a way out of all this Lurking Shadows hide me, my courage I miss Waiting I see it there, my eyes it will haunt Hating I look for the moment when I can taunt Distraction It looks away for a moment or three Inact

once again, you should know by now that my poems are not that cheery, so don't expect this one to be different, it is a new year poems, with my dreary outlook...and it is long, but bear with me here....

even without rhyming and other sound thingys it still flows great
i think and hope you agree that its about how reckless people are on the holidays and make asses of themselves and disgrace the sanctity of the holiday, and you absolutely capture me at "It's just another yesterday when tomorrow comes"
its ultimately fantastic

thank you, and that is what it is about, how holidays are so commercialized these days its not even about the celebration, or the reason, it's all about the party. And i disagree wholely with this aspect. You like that line? It was a kind of clever, i thought, but i don't usually like my own poems. Thank you.
