The Way Out

Rating: 4.8

When things are hard
When you are totally confused
All your relatives agree to diverge from you
When all that you eat is tasteless
When you are drunk of problems
You are weak in your body
All that you see is destruction
When you are exhausted
Been working without food
And no food promising to come out Early.

When at work noone appreciates your efforts
When all they see are mistakes and not any good from what you doing
When you are so bored with your life.

You feel like dying and you have bad dreams haunting your sleep
When everyone you meet dislikes you.
Everyone is taking arms and spiking bad confessions about you

When prayer feels like it's not powerful and useless
When you feel far away from God;
You are going under. Nothing pleasant in your endeavors.

Seek not to please people
Use your words; confess better
Don't speak or think bad about anyone
Tell the truth all the time
Don't waste time thinking-wandering
Lest you become depressed and you lose out and die.

Cling not to the past
Look forward and mind your own business
Pray hard and work hard
Be positive about anything
Fear no person but respect every person
Walk tall and raise your esteem
Be content: but press hard and consist
