Treasure Island

Seema Chowdhury

(14th September,1971 / Dhaka, Bangladesh)

Courage's Test

Don't close your eyes on the world
And don't feel down and blue
And know that in this aweful place
There are many who cares for you

So have faith in your ownself
And believe that dreams come true
Because your dreams are shared
By the Gracious Lord, who loves you too

So have courage to walk in
Even in the foggy clouds
And learn to wipe the tears of
All mistrust and the crazy doubts

And then surely a day will come
When things will be for the best
And then you'll have the courage
To face world with courage's test.
