This is the day The Lord gave

Here is the day The Lord gave.
Like every other day that was given before
Death, destruction,war and more
Suffering for some, struggle the same
May the day stay true to what life is
People, animals, suffer alike
Suicide bombers and genocide so rife

Murder, hunger, abuse and crime
Freedom fighters ,all, who have died in my time
Abandoned babies, and aids alike
Depression and drugs, abusers alike
This is the day The Lord gave
Yet this world has turned it's back,

No peace, or compassion, power and lust
Money and hunger are true to life.
Sickening humans who have no soul
Put here by satan to demolish us all
It may seem so, but it's untrue
The worlds gone crazy
In turn life becomes hazy
This is the day The Lord gave

How mistaking we are ,as a human race
Just look at the sky and clouds
You will see gods grace
And in between all the scum of the earth
Resides good souls, and a new rebirth

And as we cope with all that is real
The love for others, is what's really real
The beauty and faith surrounds us all
Nature and caring is easy to grasp
Forget the evil, it will never last

This is the day The Lord gave
Happiness, love, compassion and strength
Hills to climb, time well spent
Faith, overpowering all that is bad
Goodness and beauty, will be the last to stand.
My love for god is in the palm of my hand

It runs through me like an electric cord
Ecstatic jubilation and it's free for all
So take what's given unto us all
So much love to fill ones cup
This is the day The Lord gave

The bootcamp of life is destined for all
Cherish each day, it's guaranteed to end for all
Appreciate everything abound
Hard at times, you will be found

This is the day The Lord gave.
