On this Road Alone I will Tread

Where do you turn?

With your back against the wall

If you rely on your history

Again you will surely fall

It’s a bad habit

Not to pay attention to the rule

No other result can occur, but

Appellation fool!

Give me inspiration

I pray a path I find

Right the wrongs that have forsaken me

I must forgive and leave it behind

The moral imperative before me

I must alone make the decision ahead

May I have the courage to make a way

On this road alone I will tread

Without any Purpose

Without any purpose

Without family, children, and a wife

Without God

There is no meaning in my life

There is no substitute

For these things that I say

J.P. Sartre, Soren Kierkegaard, and Albert Camus

All have yet to persuade me as I will not stray

The older I get

The more I see

To humble myself

Under the bodhi tree

A vessel must be empty

Before it can be filled

Broken down and beguiled

Now ready to rebuild

Solomon was a pragmatist

His wisdom was renowned

His rulings were just

His rulings would astound

This is not an existential rant

This is not a misplaced soliloquy

This is just a story

This is just my testimony
