May love replace all other things, may we find similarities where before we saw only differences; may we come together to help each other live life beautifully. This is my prayer for 2020.

or does this year really feel like a new beginning.
thank you 2019 for every moment you showed me
and as your reign here came to a close 
and you surrendered into 2020
you embraced me and opened me and prepared me to see 
what was right in front of me all along.

it is as if the gift of 2020 came effortless
in the shift of the slide that removed 2019
and the presence that was now visible with 2019 gone

old stories, language, beliefs lingered for a second
and then as the digits changed on the clock of life
19 became replace with 20
and a new vision (20-20) entered.

i pray that we step into this new vision together
that the stories of before are allowed to rest in beforeness
and that this new perfect vision of life be clear and obvious.
