Treasure Island

Lagaya Evans

(Tennessee)

The Road


The road that leads to destruction
Has room for all to go
The broad road of sin
Your choice of grief and woe

If you desire the things of this world
Feel free to take them all
But those who choose life
Stand firm lest you fall

The road much less traveled
The narrow and the true
You walk only one by one
You answer for only you

The world thinks they can have it all
Travel both roads to suit
God said only the narrow
Leads to life that is renewed
