Another Prayer- by Thomas Clarke (composed February 2016)

I pray for your help to make it through this
I don't know how long I can do this
It's easy to be nice when everyone is nice
But not when everyone acts like they're from Hell
I pray for your help, O Lord

The flood waters are getting higher
And the fires are getting hotter 
No aid is in sight
I pray for your help, O Lord

No one left to love or hold or even talk to
My room is empty and cold
The heat is out and the snowdrifts are rising
I pray for your help, O Lord

The old are told to kill themselves
The youth are killed before they're born
And the sane are told they're insane for thinking this isn't right
I pray for your help, O Lord

This land is getting crazy
Guns and violence every day
No living wage or government sanity
I need to move away, O Lord
I need to get away

They say everyone has a purpose
But I still haven't found mine
What good can words or music do
When you can't do anything else
I pray for your help, O Lord
