Good Intentions


I do not wish to pave your road to hell


I have seen you fall and not wanting to cry

I have heard you shout

I have felt your pain and wanting to help

I asked what comfort is it you are without


If I cared to ease your troubled mind

The step from angry heart to gentle soul

Would wear away the thickened skin

That protects you from the critics of your role


And perhaps the best and worst that I could do

Would be to turn your anger into tears

And the flood might overwhelm

And drown your courage in too many fears


So if I leave you alone, not well

It’s that I do not wish to pave your road to hell
