In Times Like These

by George J. Morse

In times like these

We are tested. Pushed to the limits of what is possible,

And beyond;

Desperate to see the future, as the present

Blocks our view.

 

In times like these

We are tested. Pressed to find the answers in a never-

ending

Sea of questions;

Fighting to keep our backs off the wall, just as life would

Have us against it.

 

In times like these

We are arrested. Failing to elude the freezing

Winds of fear;

Bound in chains, as prisoners of our own

Self-doubt.

 

In times like these

We are bested. More inclined to blame than

Find solutions;

More inclined to give up, and

Make excuses.

 

In times like these

We are tested.

Make or break,

Win or Lose,

Pass or Fail.
