BE IT RESOLVED

Be it resolved …
That in this coming year
I'll embrace those I hold dear
With acts of love, not just words
So say we all?

Be it resolved …
That in this coming year
I'll replace my self-centered greed
With careful acts for others needs
So say we all?

Be it resolved …
That in this coming year
I'll keep my loving wife so very near
To keep her safe, content, secure
So say we all?

Be it resolved …
That in this coming year
My neighbor will not go without
Because I failed to heed their shout
So say we all?

Be it resolved …
That in this coming year
I'll become the kind of person
That anyone would want to be
So say we all?

Re: BE IT RESOLVED

That is a good  New Years resolution  for 2016 that I wish the world would follow. The Me, Me world seems to be promoted as an absolutely cool way to go now days which saddens me. I applaud you for recognising what we should be about. What we sow is what we reap.
HAPPY NEW YEAR from sunny summers day in Wellington, New Zealand.

Re: BE IT RESOLVED

These words are crying out for a tune. I see this as being in the same style as Dylans, Oh Sister. Can't wait to have a go at it, but at the moment it's New years eve and we got a house full. Nice on TF.

Re: BE IT RESOLVED

I'd be honoured / flattered if any of you want to put music to this. Your idea of a Dylan-esque flavor is spot on, KIR, and please feel free to edit anything needed to make it fit.

Very Inspirational !

A creed that every man should aspire to fulfill in this New Year.

I agree with the above, it would make a beautiful song.

Well done, a great way to usher in the Chordie New Year

Re: BE IT RESOLVED

SO SAY WE ALL indeed.

i think this is what we should aspire to.

when i was still working (many moons ago) my boss had a notice on the wall of his office that read;

                                      THERE IS NO "ME" IN TEAM

i honestly believe if he saw your poem he'd also put that on his wall.

SO SAY WE ALL.....no question mark

Re: BE IT RESOLVED

Hello again Tenement hope you don't mind I will put out your song on soundcloud if you don't like it I will take it down.
Every one I have shown your BE IT RESOLVED love the lyrics. Hope my version is ok. I even got my better half to help with it. It has a Indian Tabla drum playing on it that my wife brought back from India many years ago. The recording is not the greatest as it only done with my cell phone.

That saying THERE IS NO 'ME IN TEAM, also should have, The only I we should have is the eye we keep out for each other.

Re: BE IT RESOLVED

Again, I'm flattered that anyone would consider this worth putting music to. A couple of you sent me links to your work via email, and I'm extremely pleased.

Many, many thanks!
