There I was, cat-walking willfully into the depths of darkness,
Without even realizing that something great was amiss.
Suddenly a leg stuck out before me, causing me to stumble and fall,
And I flailed about, trying to keep going, really giving it my all.
‘Arghh!’ I shouted, wondering whose leg it was,
That interrupted my dark journey, and made me to stop and pause.
There was a moment of silence, until a gentle voice said;
‘My child, you are going the wrong way, follow my way instead’.
‘Take my hand’ the voice said, and I put my hand in his,
And I was led away from darkness, to joy, to light, and to bliss.
