"The Path I Must Take"

There is a bridge where two roads meet

They are merely something to fear

I cross the intersection to a dead end street

I run to my destiny which has led me here


The trees begin to whisper as I walk by

The animals call me by speaking my name

They snicker at me for being left high and dry

Because now I am trapped in their domain


The darkness comes to me from behind

It begins to learn how I feel

It has started to take my state of mind

Tell me now, is all of this truly real?


The sun begins to rise in the distance

I forget the pain I've dealt with for so long

I give up the fight, leave the resistance

I become part of good, is that so wrong?
