If it could have been a rough road,
It would have been better,
Would definitely lead somewhere,
Every jangled road.
If it could have been a bottomless pit,
It would have led to another world,
Where they stick to their words,
And where they are not amoebocytes.
If it could have been a turbulent waters,
There would have been a saving rod,
It can forcefully lead to a shore,
Where there are ready-made shelters
If it could have been a fiery furnace,
The effect can be ameliorated,
If timely intervention could be provided,
There is a reversal for every burnt face.
If it could have been a precipice,
No escape route, you think, in the air,
It is going to be like a plane crash,
The most high is still in charge.
