A Path of Sanity

Wandering aimlessly through life…
Scars of memories drop like a knife… 
Forks in the road where I always went straight…
Misguided souls who I would frequently debate…
My hands would feel their way into temptation…
While my feet stepped over contemplation…
Endless visions that my eyes drink in…
But always playing on the border of sin…
Till I pick a side that can hold my sanity…
I’ll just walk in a world without vanity…

    Hmm, strikes a chord Michael, maybe because I've been there too. So hard to be a good human as the wild side beckons. Love, Lizzie

    Sometimes it takes all I have to hold on to my sanity...and yes, temptation and sin are always right around the corner...Sometimes we fall, sometimes we stand tall..God is with us through it all!...Hey, was that cheesy! ;) Good read!

    Here you find me taking this walk and wandering aimlessly ...sometimes i walk blind cause i have tooooo not because I want to. Life always gives and throws us a bag of sin... i think that is when we start to wonder and hold on tight to the only sanity we know of... love the ending imagery of your choice here... always & forever~LINDA
