The Broad Path

Enter by the narrow gate. 
For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, 
and those who enter by it are many.

Matthew 7:13 (ESV)



The easy road,
the broad path offering distractions
of every flavor and shade.
The route most will find comfortable,
without challenge,
without heartache.
Walk the way of the lost
and never stumble.

The easy road,
dimly lit
to hide the flaws
defining its course.
Look into the shadows,
at the destitute,
who believe the popular slogans
at the cost of their souls.

The easy road,
the broad path
traveled by many
who believe in their own righteousness.
A road without a destination
worthy of the journey.
A road for those
who wish to not seek the light.
