Oh can you hear the constant sound

Of weather rageing all around

We’re in the middle of a storm

That’s taken such an ugly form.

I’m glad that I am not outside

The wind might take me for a ride

Although perhaps that could be fun

If only we’d a bit of sun !

Our world is really in a mess

Growing much worse I must confess

Seems someone, though we don’t know who,

Has played his dirty trick or two

And left us all in one great bind

For some solution we must find.

We’re upside down and downside out

We’ve lost our strength and have no clout

So buckle up and gather strength

We need to go to any length

If we’re to win this bloody war

Tis just the fight we’re ready for !

Sometimes the heart is more inclined

To seek respite and courage find

Among the days of lesser times

When this world bode in older climes.

For where we are, not where we’ve been,

Is caught in chance and grief and sin

There’s scant honor left, we may find

In all the hours to still unwind.

Oh blessed Lord,  take care that we

Escape this time of infamy !

I’ve often thought how bold are we

To dream aloud of  victory

There is a path we all must take

To learn what values are at stake

We strive to be a people free

Oft caught midst chains of tyranny.

As winds of war rage fierce and wild

A challenge to each man or child

We’re wrapt in our leftover tears

And chastened by impending fears.

There is no way to make amends

With God alone to help our friends

Beyond this sight what will we see

Still flying there, old Liberty !

The winds of change bring no relief

At times they’re cruel, not often brief

What is it that we’re meant to learn

Or how address our next concern ?

Our nation flounders all alone

For what great sin must we atone,

The sadness of our lives may be

That we remain no longer free !

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 !

I like to think that when I cry

The tears I shed whisper goodbye

To all the lost dreams I recall

And tragedies that did befall

For life’s composed of good and bad

Of days so sweet or ever sad

And thus we learn as we do grow

That what we reap is as we sow !
