Against the tide by Nathan Obi

If I can’t recall what day or time it is,

Because confusion has unequivocally set in,

If I can’t tell whether i’m coming or going,

Should i stay or should I quit?


If the world about me is changing,

And I can’t quite get a hold on happenings,

If my spirit is feeling a bit uneasy,

Should i stay or should I quit?


If my bills, thick and fast keep piling,

If my needs, out of hand are getting,

If the promises seem to be failing,

Should I stay or should I quit?


If life, already i’m tired of living,

Cos friends and loved ones are leaving,

If already my faith is drifting,

Should I stay or should I quit?


Well, here’s what I think i’ll be doing,

Cos even though the way sometimes I see unclearly,

I’ll stand firm and not be shaken,

Because the prize is for those who won’t anytime soon be quitting.
