Sometimes the world seems like it weeps,
For all those who are hurt and beat,
And all the news you read and see,
Tells of the killing and the greed.
The people that you work with too,
Go round with frowns, they look so blue,
And friends and family have such frets,
That they seem never to forget.
It’s seems the bad can just invade,
Your every pore while you’re awake,
And even come in dark of night,
To wake you up all filled with fright.
When all this comes to your front door,
You have to look inside your core,
Remembering whose child you are,
And shake off all of evil’s harm.
No matter what the devil throws,
Into your path, just let it go.
Then throw him back your brightest smile,
Because the bad can’t hurt His child.
Take all the remnants of the bad,
The hurt, the pain, what makes you sad,
And lift your lid of hope that day,
Take all the bad, pack it away.
When you get through, just seal it up,
So it can’t crawl outside the box,
And go to help those whom you know
To pack the bad and keep it stowed.
Life here’s too short to live it in
Anger, sorrow, terror, sin,
Change your life for good today.
Take the bad, pack it away.
