How can it be, the path is clear
Why should some acts instill deep fear
What crisis now hinders our ways
And complicates too many days ?
Where is the peace that we all seek
To get one through each coming week
Have we methods to gain redress
Why can’t we live without distress ?
It simply seems to query why
We must suffer ere we should die
For life was never meant to be
A paradise where none are free !
