The Left Turn

I seemed to have stepped foot in the wrong direction
That put me on the wrong path.

​The world lights me on fire,
I would put it out.

The sun loses it's light,
I found light in Jesus.

​The heart of others struggle,
​I acted on theirs above my own.

​The darkness seeps inside,
I broke light through the cracks.

​The temptations surround me,
​I broke past them.

​What direction on my path
​Caused me to turn left instead of right?

At what point made me turn around
​Back to the shadows I escaped from?

​I've been searching for a shortcut in the woods
​To get back in the right direction,
​But there is no shortcut
​As this is how I got here.
