Have you studied all the pros and cons?
Do you know where you are going,
are the possibles sharp and clear?
Do you attack your idea, knowing
there may be a point of no return?
Will you now be in a bind?
Are you surprised in what you find?
Do you have a plan for alternatives?
I’ve been there, without a friend
to say, you are going far astray.
You do not see, your mind’s not clear
enough to view what’s in your way.
It could be your point of no return.
If you follow me without restraint,
I will be your alternative and take
you through, to where trouble ain’t.
The road is long for you and me
I’ve tried to help you along your way
to meet your troubles head on as I
met mine and so will you, I pray.
We enter this world with nothing and
work from Sun to Sun, our gain’s a
friend, a neighbor, you know this, as well.
He will follow, follow you through hell
