The High Ground

M. Fennell

 

I used to walk the high ground

Until I came across too many walls

The people who kept me from my goals

Always seemed to have it all

 

You start doing what you have to

To get what's on the other side

I said the means are "only for today"

But each day I lied

 

I almost achieved my fortune

I could have achieved my fame

But it was costing me my integrity

That was too much to pay

 

It is easy to leave the moral path

We can't keep it up for very long

When you realize that you've gone astray

Recall your personal victory song

 

Brothers, heed my warning

The only losers in this room

Are those who think this is a plague

To which they are immune
