One for the Books

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: January 1, 2022

The past year is bound to be remembered…

Another year’s been published.
It was one for the books.
It’s bound to be remembered,
so let’s take one last look
at pages filled with busyness
and paragraphs of fear.
There’re endnotes of a loved one’s death
and footnotes of good cheer.

Some chapters point to answered prayer
while others reveal stress.
No fiction, here. Your story boasts
the facts and nothing less.

But all that’s ancient history, now.
What’s past is in the past.
It’s time to write a sequel
filled with mem’ries that will last.

Your yellow pad is a blank slate
just like the days ahead.
So, trusting in a faithful God,
write-on with ink or lead.
