How often is it that we think
This world of ours is on the brink ?
What e’er occurs within our sight
No matter if it’s left or right
Should savour all despite the fear
God’s Judgement Day moves ever near !
There are times my pain evinces fears
And burdens life with unwanted tears
Moments when one is upended by
A lack of concern or passersby
Please help me Lord, so I may erase
The spell of doom that now clouds my face !
Tis strange there is no rest at all
For those who stumble or who fall
Or those who’ve willed their lifetime call
To carry someone else’s ball !
Oh dearest friend, I feel your grief
I wish to proffer some relief
You close your eyes to bar the strife
That’s happening within your life.
An agile mind that used to be
Now chained by its infirmity
Oh dearest one, you’ve come this far
Try to remember who you are !
When I was young I used to pray
That I would be a mom one day
I’d raise my offspring to be good
And do the things that children should.
I’d hoped that we’d fulfill the dream
It was a lock or so it seemed
The angels watched from up above
And filled their heads with care and love.
But love is not enough to save
Each one of them from perils grave
There is no way that we may know
Wherein life’s tragedies will grow.
In winds of war or illness great
Who knows the time or day or date ?
What is it that I want to say
What act of wisdom to display
What golden thought may I impart
To let you know what’s in my heart ?
For I am old, beyond most fear
My day of judgement soon draws near
The only message that I know
Is fear your God and love Him so !
There is a door that opens wide
To reveal secrets deep inside
Within life’s labyrinth of fears
Close to a hydrant full of tears.
This battle which abides within
Determines if we lose or win
As God alone does aid our choice
So each may choose silence or voice !
