  • a curious thing to say

    can you tell me when times are easy

    I look at life each day

    watch the struggle

    see men and women ...people

    speak out against injustice

    or weep for loss

    or even weep

    for joy

    it is the world we choose

    not what we say we want

    yet everyday

    we choose the way

    we live

    we could choose easy

    we could give away

    the comfort...the familiar

    and choose to make times easy

    but we never do

    we choose

    to make times hard.
