72. Perplexing urge

By the side of a narrow path

I see a huge pit -

Dark,deep and dangerous -

To be avoided at all costs,

But my feet drag me away

From the safe narrow path

To the pit I wish to avoid.

 

The urge defies reason

Coaxes me to court trouble,

Why doesn’t safety excite?

Why is danger so tempting?
