Locked In
Upside Down World

By Mary Frances W Williamson

O World you seem upside down.
I feel locked in.
Life has a fleeting moment to give,
Men's souls are tried, some win.
Like the oak tree tough they stand,
Survivor's of the hard times.
When you see the hope your spared,
Go for it! Beware of the bad stuff.
Life is brief and fast moving.
Keep your sails in motion, proving.
Sunset is close; not far away.
Live today as it were your last day!
