The Path Of Right  

"But now old friends are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say I've changed!" -
from Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell

I am older and I feel I'm wiser.
As I save my soul just like a miser.

For I know that I have to do it right.
And I must act my best by day and night.

I've not always been on a path that's good.
Back then not doing what I knew I should.

I acted mean once and I was so crass.
Basically being nothing but a stupid ass.

But now I'm through with second guessin'.
I do good the first time for I got my lesson.

I learned it hard and I found it true.
And so now my friend I'm telling you.

Please save your life like I did with mine.
Walk the path of right and you'll be fine.

Michael "Stay On The Path!" Gallatin

Can't say that I always stay on the path but I am trying!

I'm assuming, Mike, that's not just the "path of good intentions" you're extolling. I seem to meet ever so many people on that one. I'm not always certain if it's the "right path" or just the "path of right now". Glad you found your "straight and narrow".
