High Road

When it’s hard to hear a good word, and people are mocking
When you see all doors closing, and hear dead bolts locking 

When near ones have betrayed you, and life seems unjust
When their lies have benumbed you, and you’ve lost all trust 

When sleep evades you, and thoughts are going amuck
When paths seem too many, but you can’t come unstuck 

When open spaces begin to stifle, and crowds begin to scare
When emptiness befriends you, and company is hard to bear 

Tis, but a passing phase, and the world’s an interim abode
Shake it off, kick some dirt and take the proverbial high road!
