Twisted Pathways

Forever this road goes on and on
Into the giant red sunset bright
Twilight invades the sky now
And still this road goes on.
Golden path set straight
Still truth be known
That though the path looks easy
Dark malevolent clouds hang by.
Far below the ground,
Beneath the tangled path,
Be the rotting bones of some poor unknown
The maggots with his eyes
And the raven caws overhead
Still, this be the path chosen
And the path that need be walked alone.
