Another chapter in life,
Is nearly about to close;
Seeing the toils and strife,
From the streets and roads we chose.
 
Yet it seemed to move by fast,
Wondering where it had gone;
For the good times did not last,
As a new year starts to dawn.
 
So much I want to look back,
But time is not standing still;
For the knowledge we did lack,
Those pleasures gave us no thrill.
 
That is why we live and learn,
It may have lit a fire;
But afterwards it may turn,
To loathing the desire.
 
What happened is now no more,
As we live with the mistake;
Asking God to close the door,
Knowing He will not forsake.
 
Now it becomes history,
We should forgive and forget;
No longer a mystery,
Why we are having regret.
 
But it is time to move on,
No need to dwell in the past;
As we now face the new dawn,
As another year is cast.
 
We look towards our new year,
As we go open the door;
Putting away any fear,
For what the Lord has in store.
 
We now have another chance,
To prove ourselves to God;
Obedience to advance,
When we go honor and laud.
