Like a moth to a flame

Temptation is all around us
It clings from dawn to dust.
An impulse to do
Something wrong or untrue
Will sacrifice all that is just.

Like a moth to a flame
You fly like a plane
Into a fire of lights.
Scorched to death
Without your health
Life is drifting out of sight.

You unwisely drive forward
With the pedal to the metal
As the cliff awaits your entry.
No time to think
Before you faint
Accepting the outcome with glee.

Like a moth to a flame
You fly like a plane
Into a fire of lights.
Scorched to death
Without your health
Life is drifting out of sight.

The train is on the tracks
While the horn is blowing whack
Still you lie there afraid to move.
The train is hours away
You do not pray
Just settling into your groove.

Like a moth to a flame
You fly like a plane
Into a fire of lights.
Scorched to death
Without your health
Life is drifting out of sight.

You are in a job
That continues to rob
You blind of satisfaction.
But for whatever reason
You accept the season
And do nothing to seek reclamation.

1. Recognizing a hopeless situation is the first step to solving the problem.
2. Identifying the cause is the next step to recovery.
3. Making strides to fix what’s broken starts the healing process.
4. Moving forward stimulates a fresh, new outlook.
