A Merry-Go-Round

Life is just like a merry-go-round,
Sometimes it's up, and sometimes it's down.

Sometimes it's so hard to push and jump on,
All those bill collectors calling me on my phone.

Those weekdays are speeding by so fast,
I'm wondering if by the weekend I can last.

All those chores that I have to do,
Keep spinning around in my head till I am so blue.

It would be so nice to have some rest,
So I could slow down, and be my very best.

Where does it stop and where will it end,
This merry-go-round that I'm on is in a spin.

It's going so fast, it's making me dizzy,
No wonder I'm having it so hard, I'm in a tizzy.

I think I understand what prayer will do,
It will take a load off your mind and bless you too.

This merry-go-round won't seem so fast,
If all those heavy burdens on Him you cast.

I tried out prayer to see what it would do,
Then I began to coast down, and you can too.

I still have problems, but they seem small,
I turn them over to God, He handles them all.

This merry-go-round doesn't seem to stop.
So when it gets too hard to handle, on my knees I drop.

Just try this instead of complaining, okay?
You'll find out before long, this is the best way.

When I find something that helps others,
I want to share it with all my sisters and brothers.

If I've helped you, and you understand,
Please give those that you meet a helping hand.
