choosing the light side

there are two paths I see ahead

one is narrow, straight and rocky

a few weary travelers step down

where wind is blowing softly, sweet

she turns aside to the other path that leads down

that’s where all the people are

that’s where they’re all going. down, down

concrete paved with luxury, that’s the way it is

seductive but black

down and down

she’s turning to the dark side

the light it shines gets brighter and brighter

I see it clearly, like two doors

like choosing life or choosing death

it’s so much easier just to fall away

are you falling away?

is my grip here strong enough?

can I survive yes with God’s help I can.

I can try my best but can’t turn her back

I have to warn her, have to say

but now her mind is made up

she’s on the road that’s leading down

she’s turning to the dark side

only so many tears can be cried

in the end justice is done

decisions made and lives slipped away

she’s slipping away to the dark side

but other ones they’re here they’re joining me

joining us on our journey for light

searching for God, learning so much

prayers of spirit and peace

turn us away from the dark side

we’re soaring away to the light side

we’ll be free forever on Jehovah’s side.

Scriptures: Matthew 7:13 “Go in through the narrow gate; because broad and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are the ones going in through it;whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are the ones finding it.”

John 17:3 “This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.”

John 8:32 “and ​you​ will know the truth, and the truth will set ​you​ free.”

(These quoted from site jw.org, New World Translation)
