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.
