Wrong direction


Sight far-reaching
My mind is teaching
Me a lesson in being.
Wisdom streaching
Eyes are catching
Figments of truth,
I am seeing.
I now despise
The many told lies
That in my youth
I believed.
Beneath the disguise
I see with open eyes
How lost one can be
When decieved.
I've been stultified
Directed by a foolish guide
Now I know that I must lead.
Ahead I must go,
To a place I know
Where confusion
No longer blares.
Onto the future
I must hold
With a vision
Of self-repsect
And undying care.
