The Garden of Life

I owe it to my friends and family to keep on track and never take my foot off the brake.

29/9/2018

One thing that’s for sure

Is the law of consequences

And the consequences of the law

For every action

There is a reaction

The push and pull of being

And foolish deeds

No matter how innocent

Can soon rob a man

Of his freedom

If life is chess

Then I was a novice

And my future game

Tempered in the fires of prison

Is as yet untested

So I tread carefully

Through the garden of life

Roses have thorns

And few things that glitter

Are truly gold

But a careful man

Can plot a course

To a kinder future

Be strong and have heart

The best days are yet to come

I fought the law and the law won.

I’m hoping that the good habits I’ve built and my game in general, stay with me and become a reservoir of strength and character that sees me navigate life better than the hopeless meandering I was guilty of prior to jail.

I feel the pull of various vices that could lead me to ruin; drugs, alcohol, bitterness, hyper ambition and all sorts of life traps so I tread carefully and try to keep my spirit strong and my mind clean.

I owe it to my friends and family to keep on track and never take my foot off the brake.
