Retribution

Written by: Kim Hilliker

Sorrow, suffering and karma are 
How life’s lessons are learned
And through them in the end, 
For the better our lives are turned.

And though during retribution, 
We don’t understand the pain
Each and everyone of us 
Get through it all the same.

So when your life turns upside down 
And your very being is confused
Look at the laws of karma and
See how they are used.

It may not be a pretty picture
That in which you see
But, bravely face the truth 
Of your self-imposed reality.

No, it’s not always easy 
To keep on keeping on
But somehow, someway
Right must be made out of wrong.

And when it’s finally over and
In retrospect, you look-
You’ll be forever grateful
For the lessons you mistook.
