The Imminent


The road diverges
Even the wisest men cannot know
Which path is right
Which way you’ll go
For one path is bright
Well lit and safe
But you have already swallowed
Your footsteps down
The dark side
An ever quickening pace
Temptations that inspire your tastes
The darkness does not mean evil
Just a veil covering clarity
Whose shadows flirt with fear
But be unafraid
It draws you near
To face it down
To the bitter end
For the secure path
Would surely drill
A hole through your existence
A dull pull on the heart
From going through the motions
This is not the way to start
The fire that burns inside
Will magnify your way
So you see you are not
In the dark after all
