Can You Hear It

Can you hear it in the distance,
Can you feel it in your bones.

Is it bearing down upon you,
Is it more than you should bear.

It will catch you if you let it,
It might plow you down today.

You must try your very hardest,
Try as best, as best, you can.

You should gather up your courage,
That's the least that you should do.

Since tomorrow it may find you,
So today you must make plans.

It's not anything you asked for.
Unknown vistas spread before you.

In the distance, you would keep it,
Far away and out of sight.

Let your strength withstand the turmoil,
Don't let fears betray you now.

But you hear it in the distance,
And you feel it in your bones.

As the song of your resistance
Echoes in your ears once more.
