The Road Seen

by joetwo

The road is not always how it is seen

Paved with good intentions

Direct to righteousness

With utopia right over the horizon

#

The road rarely is smooth

It rarely follows the maps

Every step requires you to be sure of your direction

Lest you lose your way

#

And that is the treachery of the road

Off the true path lie an infinity of others

Practically identical

But leading to oblivion

#

It may be wise to rest a while

But the road seen calls

Calls you to progress

To fall into its traps

#

And fall they do

Countless multitudes across the centuries

Their way lost, betrayed by direction

And unable to warn those behind them
