Sometimes the dream you’re waiting for

Lies just outside your own front door

Sometimes success that you pursue

Is something you already knew.

Sometimes your life becomes intense

If you’ve no taste for self defense

And when you fumble or you fall

Remember please to standup tall !

There is so much that I need say

Before it’s time to go away

To indicate just how I feel

With passions that are strong and real.

At times I’m sure I cannot win

The odds are stacked ere I begin

Please help me Lord make dreams come true

Grant me the strength to follow you !

Sometimes my dear, the world we know

Is not the one we’d like to show

Sometimes coditions are not clear

As we are caught in doubt or fear

Please help us Lord fine tune our lives

In manner kind where goodness thrives !

Be still my heart, I hear your beat

And from my forehead to my feet

The numbness reaches to my toes

Tis strange the way  this feeling grows.

At times my heart seems in my throat

I think that I could almost float

The fear it rises, comes and goes

When will this end, nobody knows.

But God’s here standing by my side

He holds my hand, He is my ride

I know that He is still my strength

However long be my lifes length !

Sometimes the pain’s too much to bear

Sometimes defense is meant to share,

I’ve often wished that I could fly

On cushioned wings into the sky

Escaping earth and its confines

Midst all the angst that life defines

I understand as one earthbound

What I search for is not aground !

When I look out and see her there

Our Liberty with greenish hair

So grand and strong reminding me

We have remained land of the free

Far longer than two hundred years

Amidst hurrahs and raucous cheers.


But now we are put to the test

To do what we know to be best

Thus save our nation from distress

And for the rest our foes impress

Our job’s ongoing, working hard

Protect ourselves and thank our God !

The frothy foam that caps the waves

And dredges sand from seashell graves

That long have hidden from our sight

Choose now to face the morn’s veiled light.

The ocean creatures deeper go

Escaping nature’s undertow

While seagulls frantic overhead

Search for a perch that’s safe instead !

Both you and I must reach for breath

As all the air seems sucked to death

The wind whips round with heightened speed

Oh grant us Lord, the strength we need !
