I have a compass inside me
guiding me through thick and thin;
it tells me the way to go
it tells me what is
a good deed and
what’s sin?

Without it, I would be so lost
finding my way
through this ghastly maze
tumbling and tossing;
skinning my soul
blind as a bat
rolling and scraping

There is a deep chasm
between the good and bad
and we sometimes falter;
but deep inside
we always know
which side are we on
or who is our follower?

You don’t want to lose your way
in the life
grasp it, clench it
or you can just simply hide;
But never part ways
with your compass
as your being will be shattered
with no reason to be alive.

  1. Never stood still by the definition of the inner compass as I led my way on this grounds.. I did know it existed, but didn’t payed attention to it..
    Till recently with the poems from PoetryfromInkwell and yours.. Both of you managed to let me see the real beauty of this compass..

    Thank you..
