At A Time Like This. Dipo Obisanwo

At a time like this
When hopes are dashed;
When dreams are crashed;
At a time like this
When sorrow mingles, with the breeze,
I will look up to the hills.

At a time like this
When insecurity defies measure;
When crime now brings pleasure;
At a time like this
When evil sizes up to the seas,
I will look up to the hills

At a time like this
When the sins of men catch up with them;
When danger becomes difficult to stem;
At a time like this
When hatred is all the eyes sees,
I will look up to the hills.

At a time like this
When my pen confronts my fright;
When the wrong overpowers the right;
At a time like this
When I sit to write like this,
I will look up to the hills.
