Running water no longer

Things are getting worse and worse
even within my own home
Everyone knows it is coming
but how will you prepare?
Silver and gold wont save you
Storehouses and dehydration wont save you
I'm doing what I need to know
it came at the right time
I will be better prepared for when the time comes
Cause I already failed my first test
which would've been the end of me
I need the mercy and justice
I need the hope and happiness
All I can do is keep meditating and praying
it's the only strength and comfort I have
Tears run down my face from adversity
Times are getting worse
and I see them within my own home
I have a plan
I see an out let 
Now I just have to get there
