PATHS: Wrong And Right

I Was Walking 
Down The Wrong Path
BUT
What A Pretty Path It Was!
It Had Every Thing
That My Carnal Flesh Loved
AND
It Fitted My Feet Like
Hand In Custom Glove!

I Saw
The Right Path
BUT
How Plain It Was To Me!
Everything So Straight-Laced
It Was Anathema
To My Self
AND
What Self Wanted Me To Be!

I Came Up To
The Cross Roads
AND
I Had To Sit On A Rock
AND
Do A Think
To Know Which Way Should I
For A Good Life Travel
WHEN
I Smelled 
Heard
An Unholy Stink!

Self Be Glorified!
Self To Body Is Tied!
Do What Thou Wilt!
Let Not Self Be Denied!


The Stench Of The Stink
Was Making My Skin Crawl
For
The Skunk That Stunk
Was
None Other Than
Lying Satan
The Decimating Fraud
Who
For Want Of Companions
To Accompany Him
To His Prepared Hell
Was
Agitating
AND
Proselytizing
AND
He Was Clearly Out
To Encourage Me
To Get Into His
No-Hope-Of-Salvation Bed!

Suddenly
I Softly Heard ...

I Cried!
I Died!
I Rose To Life
To Save You!
Please, I Beseech You
Come Home With Me
For
I Through Shed Blood 
With Godly Love
Dearly
Faithfully Love You!

Satan Screeched!
I Laughed!
I Cried!
I Shouted:

Thank You, Jesus!

As Heaven
In The Distance
- At The End Of The Right Way -
I Distinctly
Espied!

The Wrong Way
Was Smooth As Glass
Or So It Appeared To Me
BUT
The Right Way
Was Narrow And Rocky
Sometimes Difficult
Often Times Hard
BUT
With The Passage Of Time
I Found That
It Truly Suited
AND
Was The Best Path For Me!

I Grew In God's Grace
For
I Was Striving For Heaven
Where
Prepared For Me
Was
A Holy Peace-At-Home 
Resting
AND
Beholding My Jesus
Face-To-Face
Place!

I Daily Thank Jesus
For
His Intervention That Day
AND
I Am Glad To Say
That I Gave My Character To Jesus
For
It Was For That
That He Had His Life Paid!

I Have Given Up
On Old Things
Old Friends
Old Habits
Old Character Clothes
AND
I Am Blessed
To Say To You, Dear Folks
That
It Is The Best Decision
I Have Ever Made
AND
That
Is Not Some Jacked-Up Comedian's
Poor Joke!

Jesus Saves!!
