The Forsaken Road - Poem by Josey Alfred
Wisdom says that the path to goals
Are just so narrow with hurdles
So train each child to reach for goals,
And shun the easy paths, to stay in course.
Now the days are strange, and so are things
We are inclined to choose wide paths
For they look straight and fair for sure
And may have snares unknown, unsafe!
Often they take you through tangles,
Where traps unseen, lie on fast tracks
where you may see alluring gains
Lie heaped up in platters of gold.
These are the forerunners of sure fall!
That fall will end you in disgrace!
And throw you in poverty and shame.
So strive through life, on honest path.
And live a life of freedom from strife,
Or else you live face cast down, till death.
