What is this World that we Live in, coming to
Where is it heading, why is the world in dire
Straits, and full of turmoil.
World Events are becoming too great to even contemplate,
It is too much to bare for the one’s that genuinely
Care for the world that we live.
Violence, Greed, Crime, War, Conflicts Religion and
So Much More the list over-flows and has Spiralled Out of Control.
Hunger, Disease, Sickness, Heart-Ache and Grief.
Where in the World can one find Solace and Relief,
Is there answers to these Questions, or do we just live and then die
Without ever questioning the reasons why?
What is Life really about and will we ever get to find out the
Meaning of Life and Love will the answer come from
Where can we go to find comfort and Peace of mind
In this troubled world that we have come to know.
Is there a Hope to brighten the way to help
Us through the darkness to lead us to Light
Who will help us with our burdens to bear
Is there anyone that Really Cares?
In times of trouble and despair ,
When loaded down with heavy burdens we bare,
Many look and turn to
God for comfort and care even
Though they may doubt he is whether he is really there,
Still they turn to him in heartfelt prayer.
