Trouble

Keeping on the straight and narrow
And on top of your game
Keep your feet right on the ground.
There’s always someone loading an arrow
With a steady aim.
Ready to knock you down.

You can turn your head any way
Looking for perspective.
Can you find it?
Rolling on, every day
Trying to be selective.
Now you’re starting to mind it.

You can be in a hurricane.
Messed up blues.
You put you there.
Someone somewhere with something to gain
Teach your view.
Stake your claim.

Keep yourself prepared
For something to begin.
Trouble finds its way from
Outside to within.
