Trip of a lifetime

When I was lost, I shared the path with wise men
Yet paid no heed to their advice

Then stood forlorn at the crossroads of life
Praying to be shown the true direction

And though I was inspired by angels
I was shepherded by demons

I trampled over untold wealth unnoticed
In pursuit of lesser riches

And destroyed the path of righteousness
Blindly searching for salvation

I scaled the peaks of the highest mountains
Only to stare back into the dark abyss below

And crossed great rivers with seeming ease
Then faltered at the streams edge

I have walked headlong into danger without fear
and feared only the journeys end

And now it is in sight, I fear it no more
For in my search for the unknown

I may have unwittingly discovered myself
