Ode to 2016

I blame you not
You are just a collection of days

And no turning of an Eve
Will change a thing
Unless we change our ways

We see icons who pass
Whose passing gift
Is to remind us of our lives

And our unnumbered days
To a life inspired
Until our own flame dies

The thoughts we think
The actions we take
The words we choose to say

Will define our gift
The world will unwrap
When we reach our final day
