The High Road, Doing The Right Thing, Regardless

The high road is scary,
You’re often alone;
The air is so thin
There’s no where to roam.

The few times I’ve tried it,
I really wanted to fight;
I’m the one hurting
It’s him who should do right.

Right often boils down
to running or fight;
but there’s a 3rd way
following Jesus invites.

It was Jesus who taught us
To turn the other cheek;
Which defies common logic
And makes us look weak.

Do we really see better
When the planks been removed;
Do we gain right perspectives
Has our vision improved?

The high road makes it clear
WHOSE really we are,
Sinners saved by grace
And that’s better by far.

Hypocrisies been the master
That many have served,
It’s a title bestowed
And richly deserved.

The high road takes courage
It’s not for the weak and the fair,
Courage is doing the right thing
Despite being scared!

And you’re really not lonely
On the high roads in life,
Cause Jesus is with you
And holding you tight.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
