When Spirituality means nothing
But just something to be scorned,
When Decency just won't fly--
Then this Worlds Corner's been turned.

When Honesty does not exist
But as faded mem'ries of the past,
There's not much left for Humanity
This crumbling old world can't last.

When Faith in God seems too passe'
When loving Gratitude grows cold,
The End is sooner than we think--
For we've then nothing left to hold.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wake dear Friends, Revive the Fires,
That Faith and Hope and Love inspires!
Believe in God, and prove Him Right,
May His Son shine and give us Light!

There is Hope yet for Humanity,
"Lord open our eyes, that we may see."
May we shun the Darkness of Sin and Doubt,
Finding what Life CAN be--and IS all about!

Deleeme,
You'll never know till you try, I don't know who or if you wrote the last two stanza but if I were you I would take them out and reread them whenever you get depressed.
