Trouble Don't last always


All my life people have been telling me
that trouble don't last always!
So when they tell me why i'm
Sitting here pleading, begging
for a brighter day
All they can say is
Trouble don't last all- ways!

I sit here and its cold and
dark and i get so lonely
All they have to say
trouble don't last all- ways!

22 years went by and i'm
still walking around boxed in a
cage like an animal
and as i look up in the sky
not even God can tell me why!
trouble don't last all-ways

Soon eight years go by
faster than a sparkling dazzling,
estatic firefly in a
darting, erupting,
fire night sky
and even now i wonder why....

So muchh anger built inside me
i feed it every day!
......

And when the doors burst out open
and no shackles bringing me down
i turned to the guard; a tall 6' foot soldier
give me my belongings
And what i saw next
just picked my soul up and
threw me!

A smile crept on my face
adn the mighty bold soldier
tapped me on the shoulder
looked me in my eyes full of
tears
..

He understood my pain
and with a smile he
stood there and said

'trouble don't last all ways.'
