THE PATH OF AN HONORABLE MAN

a poem by Nancy Ellen Crossland, USA - poetry writer, author, poet


The path of an honorable man is a lonely one
One he must walk alone
Narrow and jagged
Winding and dark
That may take him far from home,

With barriers and rocks blocking his way
Resilience and perseverance must guide his day,
Temptations, charlatans, unscrupulous sorts
A constant array to cause him to stray,

But he keeps his goal and focus in sight
Unwavering from the path he knows is right
A beautiful face with a lack of heart may lure him from his goal
And evil ones will lurk nearby who try to take his soul,

But on he strides with inner strength
He knows he must endure
The man of honor
To be respected
In this chaotic world
