How high is your mountain?
How low is your valley?
Oh! How dare you think that your alley
Will never cease to tarry
For this is where a leader is carried
Before they can be freed to marry
It all seems so sweet and dandy
Nothing to fear,
This beautiful world that we live in
Always so handy
Until that day, a climate change
Drives one to that secret cage
Then without warning, the ground starts to tremble
On the right
The car sits in a crumble
On the left, the house falls flat
That’s it, must run and hide;
Or, never will come out of this crap
This is not a quick fix
Must put my pride to the side
So, I cried… I prayed…I tried…
Then found the courage to bear the pain
Alas, I gained control of my grounds
Injustice could no longer keep me down
Was this because of his grace?
Well, I thank God I am now safe
Oh! How life has set me up
So I could pop
Like a diamond in a rough
