The Wise Man

A wise man once told me
to open my eyes,
take a step back and look at my life.

"Are you where you want to be
for the rest of your days?
Don't change who you are
but you must change your ways."

"A destructive path
is not the right one
to travel down,
you will only get lost.
Lost in the darkness
and led astray
from the path of life
and righteous ways."

"It is not too late,
you can change your course
--get out of the dark
and reinforce
--a positive outlook
on the life you lead,
live to learn
so you can learn to start living."
