Short Road Poem

Short Road Poem

Do you really expect for life to treat you right?
When you are constantly disrespecting the very essence that gave you life!
The roads to wisdom are but two, one short and one long...
So what are you going to do? Will it take an overdose of drugs?
A life sentence to a prison, will you continue to abuse and beat on women.
Really what will it take for you to recognize that you are in your own way!
You keep turning to the same mess over and over again. How many more times will a woman sell
Her body, for drugs, for money, then finds her womanhood destroyed.
Better yet, many people being homeless and sick. Why challenge God with your neglect?
Raping women and babies. Poverty pimping just to get by,
Executive rip offs. Abusing the elderly, what is really going on?
The youth being victimized through lyrical warfare and exotic drugs.

There is a way out of no way. Even though you have heard the Gospel preached before.
Really God is the only one that can open and shut doors.
For what doors God has closed, no man can open, for what doors God has open,
No man can shut. Get your act together seek out God, get your barrowed life right!
This is a short road poem; hence the short road to wisdom is sharing what many
Others have been through in this life now and before. Wake up! And get your life right.
Or the long road to wisdom just might cost you much more...
