The Lonely Road



For fortune, fame, or favor
I will not take the trodden road.
For accolades and words of praise
I will not trade my soul.
For dopamine spikes
From follows and likes
My heart will not be sold.
I will not ignore the voice within,
I will not lose sight of my goal.

I will not ignore the voice within,
I will take the lonely road.

    Funny irony for me that the first thoughts your title inspired in me were about Felix Dennis’s book about how to make unholy amounts of money. 😀

    I still enjoyed the message and imagery.

        Yup 😀 although it could still be said that core messages are shared – namely, choosing not to act upon the motives that drive the vast majority.
