Path of Life

Path of Life

A Poem by AveTN

A short poem reflecting on the paths of life one chooses and how important it is to make prudent decisions.


Merciless paranoia drives away sanity

Peace has become a mere word

The feeling of it I can no longer recall

So if but one wish were granted unto me

I would turn back time to change my history

 A different path I would take

For this one, though alluring by sight,

Has proved unworthy of living

Disguised as a life, it is a shameful facade

So if this tragedy can teach but one lesson

When courses diverge before your naive eyes

Choose wisely, prudently, for you have but one life.
