I believe that every Christian and non-religious person faces the pressure to turn away from the straight path they laid themselves to one that is crooked. For Christians that crooked path is sinful habits; others, it may be addictions left behind. The temptation for self-destruction exists for everyone.


When I was a child,

I acted and reasoned

like a child.

When I became a man

my actions and reasoning

matured – I put childish

ways behind me.

Yet even in maturity

I still look back

to the days when childish ways

controlled me.

Its rattle rings in my ear,

drawing me near

to the times I cast aside.
