Listening to great speakers wise words being spoken
From my slumber beneath my blanket of comfort I've been reawoken
For those not present this poem will serve as your token
Many of the things I've heard will leave your heart broken and your eyes soaken
But the promise of my Lord is what keeps me hoping, it's what keeps me going
I just got to do my part and leave the rest to my Lord who is All knowing.
The speeches taught me to speak truth to power
Truth is hard to swallow cause its taste is sour
Whereas falsehood has a sweetness that many are ready to devour.
Amidst adversity we must remain brave and not allow ourselves to cower
And I'm thankful to the Lord for allowing me to partake in this journey of ours
The weather here like our situation is one of slight showers
But after the storm clears the clouds disappear and the sun manifests its power.
