Toast (to year 2014)

To the fourteenth year of the new millennium
To the days that will pass very soon

To a new beginning, another new beginning
as the bells of Big Ben banging, New York's ball down going

To a fresh start for those who survived
A revival from the storm they've come through alive

To the remaining pieces of fourth year high school
for once again in hardship I'll be glued

To the random problems we have to solve
where we won't use established formulas, where the answers are not Joules

To the road we have to take
It's not easy, but we'll endure and enjoy all throughout for God's sake

To each relationship, to our close connections
To those we love, and to those we'll meet as we go along

To the next 365 days of our lives
full of joys and blessings and ups and downs to mark the timeline

To the future that we do not know
and soon—as clocks tick and leaves fall—will unfold

To growth and flourishing, improvement and development
To productivity—its fulfillment we can get

To better things to come: failures to learn from and forget
To an enriched being: old vices disinfect!

To God's plan for us, plans that are good
Plans that bring hope. In Him we have stood

To His continuous presence, strength, and wisdom
for the months and weeks and hours to come

To a New Year, surging like wave
Bring forth as God wills, and He be praised.
