The Decision

The Decision

When I was young I looked at life differently
 Through a small lens of scope

 Now that I'm old let the truth be told...
 A lie is still a lie and the truth a truth

 Made a choice to turn to a power
 That's much greater then myself

 Some put that book right back on the shelf
 As a child I looked up at the clouds

 Making beautiful pictures of the vast formations
 As the many years would pass

 I had every reason in which to grasp
 Life's greatest mysteries to impart

 There's a line being drawn in the sand
 Hopefully someday all will understand

 Shadows block the memory from my mind
 One word in the dark has come to light

 Never relent to ever give up on the fight.
