As we begin the New Year

Weep not for what you have lost,

fight for what you have.
Weep not for what is dead,

fight for what was born in you.
Weep not for the one who abandoned you,

fight for who is with you.
Weep not for those who hate you,

fight for those who want you.
Weep not for your past,

fight for your present struggle.
Weep not for your suffering,

fight for your happiness.
With things that are happening to us,

we begin to learn that nothing

is impossible to solve,

just move forward.
