The Unintended Path

for every turn leading down dark alleys
forays past the known into questionable existence
for knowledge of sounds of fallen trees in empty forests
existence is measured in the self-analysis of man
self-important in belief
knowledge granted by self
credited to God through prayers
self-aggrandizing testimonies for audiences
leaning on weakness in others
building esteem off the heartache of others
finding light in deliverance
the delivered are met with joyful cheer
rousing the realms spoke of in legendary tales
ancient gods and demons are wakened
fed by energy from unintended praise
oceans swell like eyes from a child holding back her cries
spilling into the physical universe
just in time for the next bible verse
quoted to steer heart from fear
decision making not static
caught in temperamental emotions of joy seeker
environment no longer enclosing
boundless to the deviations of unbound souls
traipsing down well worn paths
from which not many return
darkened alleys beckon the far reaches of the mind
circling, prodding, attacking weaknesses
lionesses weeding their pray
all are susceptible any given day
temptation becomes strength
to justify what is unanswered no more
every man must fall
