2017 carries us forward
Despite disquiet we go toward
A new dawn full of hope
A fresh landscape to scope

Changing attitudes from separation to unity
We find together opportunity 
To keep fear and anger at bay
for yes it would lead us astray

Even though at times may be hard 
And our hearts have been scarred
It's for you and me to see
A better, humane reality

Don't discard your hearts
In favour of quick darts
Let's not grow further apart
But instead, together, find a new start
