Often on one's walk of Life
Voices of their peers are heard,
Speaking of the cages they
Were trapped inside like birds.
"My views society chains to me;
Never will it let them free.
Never can I speak MY mind
And be whatever I'll be."
Or, "Why must I be forced to walk
Upon this narrow road?
Why has Law forsaken me
And forced me to its Code?"
Caution! There is danger there,
Out beyond the way!
Learn this wisdom, hear this truth:
Upon this strait path, stay!
"Current thought's a cage," you say?
"Their values are not mine!
My heart's in bondage; pity me!
My whims do not decline!"
But, if not now, when are you free?
When no one disagrees?
When all obey their different codes
But Evil fail to see?
What then is utopia?
"Give a bubble for each man
So, from the world, to isolate"?
Where no one gives commands?
An admonition to you all:
Don't lose your care for Light!
For Truth is from a single source
And gives to all men sight.
Though paths to Light are all unique,
They follow basic Law:
Strait and narrow is the way;
Your work is to walk.
Cages? O, not all are bars!
Protection some provide!
Does not a rib cage shield your heart?
Without, it soon would die!
You see only the boundaries set --
Often you ask why;
And even when you stop to look,
You see only bliss outside.
Such for millions, in the past,
Smoking was for health!
Science looked and only saw
What it could measure then.
Watch, therefore; some think they're free
When falling helplessly...
They flap their nonexistent wings
And smile ignorantly.
Others saw its dangers, Seers,
And cried out strong to warn.
But no one stopped to listen;
They'd "heard those lies before!"
Other paths with broadened ways
Entice our world today.
But caution, for the cage-less heart
Swiftly goes astray.
By lust or wealth or flattering words
Might your hearts be swayed.
Without a shield from these, beware,
For hearts are dropped each day.
Paths are there to guide the way,
But think of where you're going!
Make your goal to find the road
From which the Light is flowing.
We are free to make our choices,
But consequence comes, too.
Be prepared to know them all
Before you say and do;
For what you say and what you do
Will be who you become.
Find the way that makes you then
A more perfected one.
Know that there is one way only
That be true and to be right.
How you'll walk is a choice you make,
But always use the Light.
