ONE of Australia's last remaining World War I widows Dulcie Hall has written a touching poem full of optimism to see in 2012.
Dulcie Hall's 2012 poem - Welcome 2012
We wake with joyful pleasure at sun-up in the morning
And we feel that something magic comes our way
We breathe in the morning air, enchanted with the dawning
Then we realise the true meaning of this day.
It's a day that never comes again for time is slipping past
It fades into the future leaving memories behind
Though you'd dearly like to keep it close and hold it to you fast
You know that it will vanish like the shadows on the blind
It's a brand new year that's dawning and it brings a world of hope
A hope for joy and happiness for all
This sad old world we dwell in is of our own mistakes
And our new year has no place for them at all
So we open up our arms and we open up our hearts
And with song and dance we'll welcome this new year
Father Time will tell us if we're doing right or wrong
And sadly, treating badly, the things we should hold dear
And when this year rolls around
And a new year comes again
When we hope to see a better world
Will we look in vain?

... as a child i have always felt like the ugly one, yet i never watched much TV or looked at glossy magazines.
I know from my own experience that when i see a photo of myself or look in the mirror, i don't look what i thought i looked like.
