A road long

A journey vast

Allies fleeting

Some didn’t last

An attempt to pull together

Battling as one

Clinging to hope

Seeking the sun

We wander on

Finding our way

Seeking what works

Inviting it to stay

A myriad of strategies

Wobbles and falls

A quest for community

To weather it all

A grand race

Spanning the globe

Some reaching the summit

Others toiling bellow

But many sharing

Much that they know

And handing out means

To help others follow

We all dream

Of days of light ahead

But some see only darkness

A cloud about their heads

Some begin to tire

Others cling to hope

We all question at times

And do our best to cope

Wherever you stand

In quests of the year

I wish you the tools

To withstand our fears

To navigate life’s challenges

And nurture your health

To be kind to those around you

And to care for yourself

I hope that you find

What nurtures your mind

And that 2022

Be to us all More kind
