Travelers choose between two roads in life:
One purely pleasure, one with some strife.
One road is narrow, and the other is wide
And you, Christian, you must help them decide.
These sad, empty pleasures soon lead to despair,
Yet many still travel that road, unaware,
Not knowing the narrow–harsh and hard though it seems–
At its end holds a treasure beyond mortal dreams.
The Signpost is clear, and yet many ignore
The fate that their easier road has in store,
But there you stand, Christian. Will you let them be?
Will they go to their deaths, or will you make them see?
Can you stand in silence, and watch them walk on,
When their chance at Life will quickly be gone?
Or will you shine your light on the Signs’ saving words,
Screaming the truth in hopes to be heard?
Remember this truth, for they won’t be here long:
If you don’t point them right, you are pointing them wrong.
