The Path

The Path

The chosen path
to enlightenment
Littered with debris
and tangled weeds
 
Each step
eradicating
the overgrowth
and sowing new seeds
 
Every stalk plucked
and foreign bodies
destroyed
Purposeful and precise
 
At journey’s end
rewards are reaped
Without the work
just a fool’s paradise
