the road to hell is paved with good intentions

i walk alone down a street
i hear a heart of two beats
the one, two beat of an empty soul
has many pieces that could make it whole

i rest my chin upon my hand
knowing no one will understand
the thought that races through my mind
thinking of the future of mankind

in a child's mind are fairytales
but in reality there are screams and wails
its all a heads or tales choice
speak up now while you have a voice

take life as it comes
not worrying about money sums
and take care of the poor and weak
for they have something true to speak

if you make a choice
then make it right
so that you may sleep soundly
through the night

knowing that you had helped at least one of many
give your truth to those with out any
so that they may pass it on
enjoy the sunset and the dawn

for there are those who can not see
how this life should really be
even though no one's willing to try
leaving the hopeless in anguish to die

The author's comments:
what inspired me to write this was people being stupid and selfish in general... and people are so naive of the world around them.
