The Lighted Path - Poem by selvin mcrae

The Lighted Path
Written by Selvin ‘Ewan’ McRae

I’ve got to get myself together
Not spearing other’s feeling
Even if it causes tears to roll down the cheeks
As long as the truth I speak
I will not be a hypocrite
Neither a nuisance to society
Living a life of love today
Since tomorrow, is not promised

Help! Help! Some will cry
So I will always lend a helping hand
Even before help is sounded
I’ll let a helping hand, be privileged
Be cautious of the surroundings you be
Letting your path be a light
Beware of jealousy and strife
For no reason, you will be disliked

The beauty you see on the outside
Can be the devil on the inside
We have to find that inner strength
To keep us on the path, of our legends
Our life should inspire others
Taking them to higher heights
As we rise to the occasion
Differentiating the fool, from the wise

Life has its lavish luxuries
Its temptations and its frustration
The law and the lawbreakers
The Good Samaritans and the evil ones
Keep these words of wisdom
Let them be the light to your path
For you to see when it’s dark
For you to stand up for your right and talk
This Lighted Path
