In The Midst Of Chaos



The winds of change are blowing. The upheavals are huge.
In the midst of chaos don't become deluge.

The tricks of trade are knowing. The insiders are vain.
In the midst of chaos don't become insane.

The crimes of hate are growing. The felonies are dire.
In the midst of chaos don't become misfire.

The routs of trust are showing. The promises are rare.
In the midst of chaos don't become unfair.

The wits of mind are slowing. The intellects are spun.
In the midst of chaos don't become undone.

The streams of life are flowing. The episodes are wild.
In the midst of chaos don't become defiled.

The sands of time are going. The residues are few.
In the midst of chaos don't become untrue.

The moods of love are glowing. The romances are heat.
In the midst of chaos don't become effete.
