A Higher Force than human kind
May have a better plan in mind.
Tho’ our strong will shows magnitude
By exerting determined attitudes,
At times it may be good to quit,
Collect your loss and then submit.
Let's zero in on all the need
That family, clan or group may breed
To build for growth and standing tall
Together now; not for a fall.
A Higher Force has made the call
For greater good of one and all.
Look at herds of gentle deer
Always watching at their rear.
The slower, weaker, ill in health
Will just submit to save the wealth
Of all the rest within the herd.
They die without regretful word.
At times the weeds will spread way out.
The farmer knows to use his clout,
Or wheat will never have a chance
To bear its seeds on all the plants.
The farmer must determined be
To make the food for you and me.
The question comes ‘bout knowing how
To tell which way is right, right now.
Is now the time to stop and quit
Or standing firm, “I’ll not submit!”?
The only way we can decide
Is listening to our Strength inside.
