Treasure Island

Henry Brown

(31 July 1947 / Johannesburg South Africa)

Tough Times


When times are tough and you seem to loose hope
When it all becomes too much and you feel you cannot cope

When you look at the horizon and see nothing there
Talk to people who don’t seem to care

When every road becomes a dead end
You ask for help and can’t find a friend

Remember there is someone praying for you
And rooting you on in the things you must do

Because you are special in the Lord Gods sight
And he is next to you to help you win this fight

Just let go and let Him do what He must do
I know by trusting Him He will see you through

The journey might not be easy, and you might have a tough time
But you will pull through it and come out of it fine

I am praying for a breakthrough, so just praise His name
And after all this you will never be the same

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
