good intentions.

June 16, 2011

I had so many good intentions that I paved myself a road,
The road leads on straight to Hell as the old, old saying goes.
And this yellow-brick path is mortared with all those thoughts and deeds,
Upon which all these demons now come and go as they please.

      Thanks! It seems to be how this mind words. Either simplifying the overwhelming or over-analyzing the petty.

      • Thanks for simplifying the overwhelming–makes it so much more manageable. And this was certainly not over-analyzing the petty; rather it is an eloquent pursuing of the logical outflow that comes when a phrase is put to scrutiny.
