we live in a strange that challenges our logic
where economies falter...people battle...hostilities reign
uncertainties looking over our shoulders as we try to live
these are trying times for us...with no resolutions in sight

the ones working hold on tightly to what jobs they have
those not so lucky take whatever they can get to survive
families are forced to adjust to the times...pennies are watched
these are trying times for us...with no resolutions in sight

rich get richer...poor gets poorer...the middle class disappears
we sit and watch the world and wonder...where will it go
the old begin to doubt their security...but refuse without a fight
these are trying times for us...with no resolutions in sight

some had hopes of travel when they retired...and leisure times
now all that is available to them is the leisure times
watching our children and grandchildren struggle daily
these are trying times for us...with no resolutions in sight

From the Heart of an Artist Quiet Storm by Gwendolyn Thomas Gath

Perhaps "..Quiet Storm" will help rekindle old flames buried and long forgotten or express the love so deeply locked inside of your soul longing to be released. Regardles..
