A Fistful Of Stars: A New Year Every Day

Embedded in Hariharan Balakrishnan's poem is a thought that can lead to a well-lived life.

Every day is a New Year
For someone somewhere on this earth
A new born child
Born in a barn
Or a rich man's home
With or without God

Every day in every way
Is something new for some
Joining school, or leaving college
Getting a job or leaving one
A day of birth, a day of death
Every day is new

One more year dawns for you
As it does for me
A new year dawns every day
For all of us here
In this country, on this earth
On this Mother Earth
Every day is new
