Difficult Ways - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Troops are put on maximum alert and withdrawn
Defense thinned elsewhere when battle lines are drawn
Opportunities explored and strict vigil maintained
No loop holes or breach in security ascertained

Generally mutiny is not tolerated and quelled
Enemy’s thrust is halted and repelled
All might is thrown to thwart or repulse
To make sure that it is ……………

What do we do when conscience revolt?
Everything seems to be in disorder and at fault
Mind run counter to the inner order
Confusion all over as if rule of disorder

Good counsel comes to rescue and prevail
Sub conscience may force the way and avail
Best possible means to control the situation
Nothing slips out of hand and is out of question

Hatred, anger lust and greed form the formation
Frustration takes over and finds the elevation
Common sense may not work and take back seat
All evils may surface and find tune with upbeat

Who else to be taken care of and strengthened?
Given more room to operate and widened
Honesty, Love and trust should come to fore
You will find the change witnessed never before

Life is like battle ground with all the dangers
May fail even if we are good mangers
What is required or most essential at this stage?
Resolve to find ways and imprint on new page

Never allowing self to be derailed from path
Not thinking of consequence or a result aftermath
Steering the course through speedy wind
New alternatives to be kept open and find

This is how we soft pedal in difficult way?
Remember HIM with sincerity and pray
Rest will have its own smooth passage
Between the lines this must be the clear message

    difficult ways is part of life, but with JESUS in our hearts everything is alright.
    so much truth in your words, things that people have not heard.
