THE FORBIDDEN PATH

IT'S A ROUGH AND TUMULTUOUS TIME
A LOT OF FISTFIGHTS AND SQUABBLES
SKIRMISHES AND ARGUMENTS

FEAR SWEAT UNCERTAINTY
AND ANXIOUSNESS RULE THE DAYS
TOSSED ABOUT ON THE SEAS
OF DAILY EXISTENCE

WHEN ONE ABANDONS ALL RULES
REGULATIONS CUSTOMS AND DEVICES OF IMPOSITION
FROM SOURCES KNOWN AND FOREIGN

ONE WHO CHOOSES ONE'S OWN PATH
BLAZING A TRAIL WHICH NONE OTHER SEES
AND WHICH S/HE IS FORBIDDEN
TO TREAD UPON

FOR THE FORBIDDEN IS ALWAYS
THE PATH OF FREEDOM AND JOY
THOUGH YOUR CLOTHES BE DIRTY
AND YOUR BODY BLOODIED

ON IT ONLY FINDS ONE
A PEACEFUL HEART
