These Are The Times by Latonia Sears


So many in debt and

so many others going under

these are the times that make

us think which make us wonder


About the things we can’t change

everything is so different these days

really looks and sounds strange


These are the times when your every day

has become so fast paced

can’t slow down for this thing

we call the rat race


I can just imagine the stories you

have heard around town, on the news,

on the corner or even in the schools


These are the times

when we must stick together

break bread and say

a prayer with one another


Stop hurting start hugging

join hands and do something

stand beside each other

you know like brothers


Yes these are the times

that turn mice into men

and foe into friend


So what will we do

where will we go

don’t you know?


Time is ticking

while days are passing

make a decision

no more guessing


These are the times

not to run and hide

stand up be brave

show some pride


Yes these are the times

when “We The People”

have to make a change

and get on the bus


Remember these are the times

when you need to participate

because after all aren’t you

a part of this place?
