TRYING TIMES

There are days
When joy is scarce
And glee, flee;
When sorrow lurks,
And pain draws nigh
Sometimes…
Most times…
They are trying times
For we try to hope
And we try to smile,
Maybe ’twill help us cope
Who knows?
It may be better
Alas…
After the earth rotates
On its orbit,
We, like the earth
Go about our cycle
But at such times,
‘Tis that of pain
And that of sorrow –
For such is a man’s life
Till he goes
The way of all flesh
Such is his tale
Indeed ’tis full of troubles
And life’s tempest…
But I wish on those days
To have strength,
To have faith
To have hope
