For so it is and it will be

We need the truth to set us free

What is the cost of liberty

If we are blind or will not see ?

One man he trod the road to peace

He prayed to God to grant release

And bowed his head unto the ground

Until some solace could be found.

He raised his eyes up to the sky

To see if heaven gave some reply

The wind blew hard, the rain it came

He cried aloud and called God’s name,

Forgive me Lord, for I’m not strong

One thing I ask, will I belong ?

While in the land of make believe

Where fallen dreams perhaps collide,

When all the plans that you conceive

In shadows dim do there abide

Just stand erect and truth receive

Or from your future choose to hide !

The world’s no longer black and white

Its color code is sheer delight

Ranging from dark to brightest light

With every tint from day to night !

There may be some eight billion souls

Whose values differ from their goals

While many playing other roles

Find life demanding greater tolls !

The leaves of life our stories tell

As all our days with living swell

Though events happen slow or fast

Some may be short while others last.

Each committment we guarantee

Does change our path or set us free

Times are troubled and full of woe

And with the seasons seem to grow,

There is no answer clear or sweet

That shouts aloud win or defeat !

There is a valley through which each must pass

Where all the minutes sift through God’s hour glass

The journey will be neither swift nor fast

As there is none to know how long twill last,

Make ready my soul, for the die’s been cast

This role that we play, both varied and vast !

Speak softly now, oh my sweet soul

And we shall make it to our goal

Let kindness be the guide we use

While arrogance must we refuse.

For who is there will bear the pain

Of impudence again, again

The folly of impatient fools

Will put to waste all proper rules.

Beware my dear we have small choice

Tis better far speak sotto voiced !
