when all else fails

by james robert
when the singer in your soul
forgets the words to your song
and your get up and go
has gotten up and gone

when the line becomes fuzzy
separating right from wrong
and your dancer and your dance
are just stumbling along

when your truth is getting weaker
and your lies are getting stronger
and it's hard to hold your head up
very high for too much longer

when the words from your heart
won't come out of your mouth
and much of who you are
continues going south

maybe something novel
is what you'd like to try
perhaps you'll take a knee
or look up to the sky

while you are looking skyward
trying to locate your God
he is there inside you
so just give him a nod
