The Path Of The Righteous Man - Poem by Anthony Yaman D. Cabal

The path you will traverse will contain a lot of bumps and turns,
And though you fall, you get back up, and continue when the lesson is learned,
You'll be shattered to nothing, fail repeatedly, again and again and again,
And everytime you look for comfort the trials stack up and it seems like it never ends.

Being hopeful is one thing but being courageous is in a whole new level,
Being hopeful brings flashes of light while courage lights a candle,
Courage gets you across the road and in to the heart of your enemies lines.
And through facing whatever is ahead of you, in God you'll fall in eternal bind.

A midst the path lies the unjust rules that oppress on the normal man,
And the power isn't shared to the people it stays in their self righteous clan.
Offered God's embrace, they reject it to forcibly grasp on evil's hands.
They know the eternal life they rejected but still on short happiness firmly they stand.

But as their ignorant mind tells them, they're not ready when divine intervention occurs.
And they insist on it not happening and make decisions with a slur.
Signs are appearing, that they aren't right, but they assert it's just a blur.
They restrict us all turning us into lab rats but insisting we're still birds.

The time will come and it's running fast,
And when the table turns they'll run from blasts,
Caused' by the unjust actions they did in the past,
And they will realize that the time of reckoning has come at last.

this supposed to be in quatrains
