DRY BONES

 
All effort
 
Like pouring water into a basket
 
Many battles  fought
 
Now blunt the once sharp machete
 
Thoughts of can they rise again
 
These dry bones…
 
 
 
Mapped out all strategies
 
Doing all with diligence
 
Yet, experience serious tragedies
 
Running out of hope and patience
 
Thoughts of can they rise again
 
These  dry bones…
 
 
 
Loads of carry-over
 
Burdens that are killing
 
Can I cross-over?
 
In the air, ominous feeling
 
Thoughts of can they rise again
 
These dry bones…
 
 
 
Yes , they can
 
In the Lord's name and power
 
Shall rise back to life.
