Thunder and Lightning

Updated on August 15, 2017

When those who think they have the reigns, to vent such,

and all that they have to say doesn't mean so very much.

As the time passes by and nothing seems to be well done,

Is but a waste and a shame, with each setting of the sun.

When all realize, come to senses, that they've been vexed,

Is a time of taking the helm of the ship, avoiding the wrecks.

Picking up the pieces and moving forward, a positive refrain,

Being a real leader of men not the end, caboose on the train.

When the thunder roars and the lightning does flash,

A reminder to humanity, to take heed, not to be rash.

The trusted leader of us all, one who is sitting on high,

Will always be there to keep us true, till the day we die.

The Father God, his patience is long and is restrained,

Every move we make to be measured and unchained.

While in the end, we each are so judged, of our humility,

For every move we do make, an act we do is his to see.

We shall all learn that as we maintain, do persevere,

keeping our minds on the future, our eyes very clear.

Everything to improve, a better day then we will see,

Our own children we do inspire, and all happier to be.

We must be strong in our faiths, everyone to hang on,

The rising of the sun, dawn to come, will not be long.

Our lives are a gift, each soul to lift, embrace the day,

Be thankful for sweet breath, all we're left, then to pray.

      Timely reminder, Thunder and lightning, sunshine, rain or snow, we take it from the hand of caring Creator, God the Almighty.
