When times get hard
The storm will not last forever!

Hard times are only for a season
This is why winter is there for a reason!
This is a truth for the ‘youth’
It’s time to realize
That trouble should change,
You on the double!

Accept the hard times
To prepare for the good times
That will bring ‘glory’
To your ‘story’

Accept the good times
And prepare for the future storm
By now you are in ‘form’
So the next time it will be the ‘norm’
Remember, be calm—

Take this truth in your palm
And scream…
Never, will the storm last forever
