Happy New Years everybody!  Just a quick reminder that as we make our new-years resolutions, to not forget what’s really important in our lives, and of course, to be thankful for what we have.
Midas’ Lament:
By: Kyle R. Zentmeyer
 
Now I have everything I ever wanted.
Now I own the whole world in my hands.
 
But there you stand; a tear of gold upon your face.
In my lust for riches I chose brashly in haste.
Now I know I had everything I wanted.
But now you’re gone, with a statue in your place.
 
Now I have everything I ever wanted.
Now I own the whole world in my hands.
 
Yet here I walk; among the empty halls.
No more servants at my beck and call.
Now I know I had everything I wanted.
But oh what dream hath wrought my fall.
 
Now I have everything I ever wanted.
Now I own the whole world in my hands.
 
Here I now weep; Just a moment too late.
By my own greed have I sealed my fate.
Now I know I had everything I wanted.
Never again shall my measure of riches be great.
 
Now I have everything I ever wanted.
Now I own the whole world in my hands.
 
‘til death now I’m released; my ruin echoes my plea.
Mocked by my wealth, the whole world now to see.
Now I know I had everything I wanted.
All that I want is now to be freed.
 
Now I have everything I ever wanted.
Now I own the whole world in my hands.
