The Path

by Michael D Nalley   Feb 5, 2005

There is a spiritual path that leads to Life
Another wicked wide road leads only to strife
The narrow way avoids the confusion
The Light exposes the dark illusion

The horrible nightmare of the void of the soul
Seeks the dream of completeness to be whole
The wise will choose the illuminated path
Fools will wander aimlessly into the wrath

Our illusions cover the way we really feel
Causing us to turn from the truth that is real
Cold hearts beat where the soul is dead
While empty distractions fill our head

Many will stray into the darkness of night
Their eyes become too weak to see the Light
Charms detour us from the path we should choose
The devil is in the details of what we have to lose

I have gazed into the sad eyes of the living dead
Seen through their tears where they have been led
My spirit reached out to them, as my heart bled
If only they had chose a different path instead

We seem to need our illusions to help us cope
Yet, the healing comes from faith Love and hope
