This is a poem
Moral Path

I live a life of solitude at such a high altitude
Looking at my compass to direct a path
I developed such an attitude lacking all gratitude
To stop a process that leads to (tragic) aftermath
Do I have the fortitude to deal with such magnitude

Or am I stuck on a looping track, unable to fight my way back

The higher I rise the more it feels like my demise
Looking down to the ground I can feel the wrath
Through all my tries it still feels unwise
It’s complex in a sense yet I can do the math
With all I despise from being chastised is there still time to revise

Is it not a failure to backtrack, even just to pick up the slack

The emotions that I feel have started to peel
The debris begins to flee I need a righteous bath
To remove what I can’t conceal this is my last appeal
To stop the snickers the stares, labeling me a psychopath
It’s all just so surreal to know I’m just a cog in the wheel
