Lost Soul in a Hellish Hole

You never meant to sell your soul

But you did so all the same

Now you're left with both hands tied

Hard to undo such a change

.

Your mind was lost and impaired

And entrapped in the Devil's snare

Altogether a situation hard to fix

Once you've suddenly crossed the (River) Styx

.

.

Walking the gold paved roads

Of a confused and burdened soul…

Not all that glitters is gold,

A fool's easily sold

On trinkets of such small worth.

Inviting temptations

With no certain ascertainments

Leads you unnoticeably astray

And you never know

The exact point you cross the road

How do you know

When you've reached the other side

.

.

Suddenly you stopped believing

Your faith grew jaded as you aged

You chose to close your mind

And thought you were cool all the same

.

Happy or so you thought

Until forced to face to cost

Shaking hands dropping coins

In devil ferryman's palm

.

.

Walking the gold paved roads

Of a confused and burdened soul…

Not all that glitters is gold,

A fool's easily sold

On trinkets of such small worth.

Inviting temptations

With no certain ascertainments

Leads you unnoticeably astray

And you never know

The exact point you cross the road

How do you know

When you've reached the other side

.

.

Like a thief, a beguiled liar

You began to cheat, play with fire

You think you're traversing streets of gold

But it's a mere disguised hellish hole

.

You once tried to hide

The route out is now hard to find

You're ready to cross back but the river is so wide

You're not sure just where to begin

And it's easier to just bide your time

.
