The Sky is Falling

When you think the sky is falling

That you’ve missed your life’s calling

When you’re feeling sad and forgotten

Lonely, abandoned and downtrodden

 

When you think it could get no worse

That you’re living under some curse

When you feel you can’t take another step

That you can’t go on without some help

 

Look around reach out to another

One of your social sister or brothers

One whose fate has been unkind

Someone who would benefit from your time

 

Soon your sadness will be gone

Replaced with much gladness and a song

When thoughts of you finally cease

You’ll find the secret to inner joy and peace
