There were days
gleamed through my eyes-
with clear ways.
Later those beams left me,
When I travelled through odd paths,
Sometimes bringing havoc to my health,
and making cracks in my wall of relationships,
plunging me to utter darkness.
Today with a slight hangover,
of another astray,
opening the bible, glancing at my small kids
and only loving mother,
I decide to part my ways to take a path
of righteousness, light and peace.
