You heard me right,
This year will be out of sight!
Last year has finally departed,
So let’s get the new one started.
Yes, I am ready for this year,
To bring forth not just what I hear.
But those things that I speak,
With confidence, and I won’t be meek!

The “total fulfillment” year is at hand,
‘05’s hourglass dropped its last grain of sand.
It’s over and for some it wasn’t pretty,
With it went the anguish of a whole city.
Yes, we should reflect on what we learned,
But for days gone by, I’ll not yearn.
Can’t stay cast down nor stay perplexed,
I’ve been given more grace in which to flex.

It comes a time when all is right,
The seed that was planted is now in sight.
The things that I have believed for,
Prayed for and stood therefore,
They will come to pass this year,
I know this because His Spirit is near.
His promises he gives and always fulfills,
My greatest desire is to do what He wills.

The world saids, “let’s get this party started!”
But we say this is not for the fainthearted.
Last year if God told you what He has for you,
Step into it and know that ALL of it He will do.
It’s not our job to know the how and the why,
Just know He is not a man that He should lie.
I know this year will be the start of something new,
Have “total fulfillment” in everything that you do.

Good rhyme scheme, and wonderful, hopeful message. Work on more consistent meter, and your poetry will really pop!
