Narrow I tell you narrow


Singing dancing 


Walking through thicket and Barrow


Like lambs to slaughter 


Walking talking thick with laughter 




A fork in the path


That needs to be trod


Walk en mass 


Or  on your Todd




The lane or the highway 


Path or the byway


Decisions decisions 


Which way to flow


Like a stick in stream


Mind fogged with dream




Sleeping I walk


On the way wide 


Drawn by the tide


Never to balk




The river rushes onwards


Down faster under brushes 


Over rocks she gushes


To sheol she draws us




A stream gentle and slow


Meanders through pastures 


Glistening enrapture's 


Nourishing to land and soul 


Further and further from sheol 




The way is wide


A slutty bride


Seductive as a whore


For many a men children she bore


Bastards of sin


Lying cheating and drinking 


No time for regret or thinking 




Two paths side by side


Yet by a gulf are they devide


in sight they pass into valley yonder


So few stop to wonder


Why the gate so wide and tall 


And the crevice so small


The valley wide and deep so brightly lit




I say to thee beware the valley


But he say nay have no fear


For salvation is so near


I tell you I go to green pastures 


In the valley of many


He told me so my dear old pastor




We are many, a legion you might say


And ye so alone on your standing stone


Come join us brother for time is near


Winter comes with the a raging lion




Tearing and thrashing


Gnawing and slashing


Tearing friends and foe


Devouring from his velvet throne


Pulling apart babe's on breast


Destroying without pause


In the valley so brightly coloured 


Every detail of Satan's rewards


Spread across the pastures 




Man woman child


All sleeping


Only the living weeping


In slumber they rest


Before the test 




That fork in the road


What did it mean


Wide way or narrow


For easy way my eyes do gleam




To be human is to be weak


The sins of life beckon


Strong humble and meek


Is the narrow path


The way to life eternal


fear not him who kills the body


But fear gods eternal wrath




Satan is your friend today


Your destruction on the morrow


Become gods friend


And escape the sorrow


For the end is nigh


With regret and a sigh


I feel drawn to fleshly pleasures




But i draw my courage through payer


And step onto the narrow way


The long task ahead


I dont look back


Death is waiting to welcome be back




As i shed my earthly passions


And live upon my daily rations


I can breath the fresh air


I can run upon the grass


load i bare is less each day


For im not alone upon on the way




The lamb and the shepard


The son and the father


They help me shed my cares


To avoid satans snares


I love all forgive all


My reward life eternal.




Narrow is the way to life


Narrow is to avoid strife


Narrow is the way to live


Narrow is to forgive


Narrow is to follow law


Narrow is to accept your flaw


Narrow is to give thanks always


Narrow is to be as christ all ways

The lane or the highwayPath

The lane or the highway

Path or the byway

Two of my favourite writers come to mind...

"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and Iā€”
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference."

- Robert Frost

"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives."

- Henry David Thoreau
