Trying Times

                      Trying Times


Let there be peace in the Middle East and the Far East
For the war that is, should never be
And friend and enemy sit down to have a feast
Then nations in suspense, await the results to see

When one nation learn to put down it's arms
The Universe will rejoice in contentment
Find wisdom in the proverbs and the psalms
And nation will not look at nation in utter resentment

Even though one is given free will
It is the content of one's character
Therein, resides the power to change one's destiny still
And great understanding determines where one goes in the hereafter

For there is a karmic price one nation has to pay
And for the one who has no conscience, no love
There will be a time to suffer one day
As judgment reigns down on every nation, from above

These are the days of trying times
When time itself and the Spring Equinox seem to be upside down
A near time in which all humanity and nations are judged for their crimes
All evil goes and goodness comes to town

And some will reward evil with good, this should be duly cherish
Think not of the wrongs done in the past or one will soon perish
But forgive, let it be known, let it be understood
For the reigning King of t he Universe will appear and, he could
