Tale of the Times – Mary Donatelli

Morning has spoken
With a new dawn…

2020 was a year to be of transformation
and Grace
A year of accomplishment,
a change of pace
A year to discover the hopefulness that still stood
A year to contribute
to causes of good

With hope for the demagogue being gone
The year 2020 would end with a song

Then from the devil wind of lacked grace
Came the darkness with the human race
Of death of man as if color was a disgrace
Tones of Hate

A hate so deep we began to delete
All those that did not stand on our ground of defeat
The darkness grew in us all
We stood- amongst the fall

For one that grew up in a home of equality
Preaching grace amongst the Dakota plains
This nature of imbalance of existence
Tipped the balance of the sane

My faith in a God that forgives stands challenged
As history repeats sins of mankind
Glorifying the indignities from the dark tower
The man with -no mind

As injustice grew
Another layer was added
A global pandemic that matted our souls
Of silence and fear
Each layer pealing back the years of tears

Loneliness and friendship struggled to survive
Through visions of pixelated chaos of zooms
Never safely, leaving our rooms

Quarantine became a global game
With China thrown as the place of blame
As the virus of wildfire spread
The dark tower of command spoke with disgrace
Yet, still led

Until the Man spoke with angels on wing
Of hope and truth, finally dumping the King
Words stroking the hearts of those that were broken
Nonsense turning to gratitude spoken

Morning has spoken
With a new dawn

2021 will be a year to be of transformation
and Grace
A year of accomplishment,
a change of pace
A year to discover the hopefulness
that still stood
A year to contribute
to causes of good
