Living In Fear and Hope

Today, tomorrow, who knows when
This world will yet come to an end.
Living in fear of life itself is enough.
But to worry about fire, storms, and war is tough.
Does anybody care about life at the least?
Doesn’t anybody want to live in peace?
I know I do, cause I want to see the sun.
Of all the pain love brought, I want to find the fun.
The joy of waking in his arms each day.
And when I’m upset, a soft voice to say, “It’s ok.”
To see the day when we join together,
And tell the whole world we are forever.
To see the beautiful children we will create.
To see all that would be just great.
I want to see what I can make of my life,
Knowing I had to be extremely careful with each strife.
So if you’re listening to me, tell me what you feel.
And if you feel the same, tell me something real.
