Up Above The Situation (REVISED)

Alet my friend, I wish I could throw a switch
so you'll understand how important you are,
know how wonderful it is you’re here to share
the off-centre jokes your friends and I make
up as we go

As Proverbs helped my heart mend, melted
the pain in my breast, I recommend you try
this remedy; it filled my poisoned mind with
medicine - I sought the voice of Wisdom,
was lifted high above this common life

Hurt inflicted in my sister’s voice accusing
me of treason ached, but Proverbs can take
you above situations where nasty intent of
others bend your feelings deeply, you bleed,
can’t see a way to forgive, but never forget

A lesson is learned; you’re wiser, can make
allowances, seek respite from a difficult life,
your smile and laughter abide beneath the
pain of this moment and tomorrow we shall
have fun again, just don your mask

Until the smile refills your heart…

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
