The Wrong Path

I know where this path leads

Though it never starts the same,

Cloaked in half-truth and shadows

The path plays a different game.

 

I know where this path leads

And it’s not a happy end,

Never the same path twice

But knives a heart on the mend.

 

I know where this path leads

And I’m sick of finding my footprints.

The beginning is misleading every time

So I ignore the signs, the hints.

 

I know where this path leads

And I will follow it no more;

Something inside me has broken,

Been torn apart in my core.

 

I know where this path leads

So now I will make an about-face,

Away from this horror, this torture,

My own pain in this hideous place.

 

I know where this path leads

And I won’t be misled again.

I will take another way,

Focus on the why, not the when.

 

I know where this path leads

I can no longer be deceived,

Instead of retracing the steps I made,

I will learn from the pain received.

 

I know where this path leads,

So here is where it ends.
