Troubled Times

Troubled Times

Many live through troubled times
And won’t have time to read these rhymes
So who can help now it’s begun?
A prayer each day, thy will be done

For peace is needed more than fear
No point in panic, this is clear
Some logic and a clear head
Remember what our mentors said

For life moves on, things come to pass
And here we are, ‘midst broken glass
Tread carefully, yes, but never hide
With good and bad we must abide

Stand up and act when it’s your turn
For endless things we have to learn
Save what you can as water climbs
And dream beyond these troubled times
