The Snake and The Lamb: A poetic prose

As I sit here in my room listening to The Doors, I meditate and trip.
I've been over ten million places in a minute and "let me tell you
something...I am tired! I am also wired!

I have a confession in my heart and it's ready to come out. I've been
dazed and confused, I no longer care what to do. I know I'm doing
wrong, but I keep hearing the same song in my head and it says,

"Brake on through to the other side."

Every individual is like a shut door; you never know what or who is
on the other side until you open it.

Jim Morrison described himself as "A Lunatic that fell from a tree in the
night." I believe he meant, he was the snake that came down from
the forbidden tree that was in the Garden of Eden.

At times I am a lunatic or a snake, today I am a lost lamb. A lamb that
was in the middle of the Pasture, but soon fell behind and got lost,
all because of the beautiful snake that crossed my path.

The lamb stopped to talk to the beautiful snake, and he liked what the
snake said. The snake told him, "Travel with me and you will go places
you never been too, you will see things you cannot imagine, and all
the beautiful female sheep you want will be at your feet.

The young lamb thought about the proposal and told himself, "Yeah,
it'll be nice to travel to different places, meet new lambs and sheep."
Then the lamb thought about it some more, this time he asked
himself, "If I travel, will I ever return home? worst if I get lost."
There's where he realized the rest of the lambs were gone and so
was his Pastor.

The lamb started getting worried and afraid, because he stayed
behind and how was he ever going to get back home. He didn't know
the roads. Now, what was he going to do?

The snake saw that the lamb was scared and frightened. So the snake
offered his help and said, "Come on young one, I'll help you find home,
but first won't you do some traveling with me?"

The lamb thought about it again, then he said, "Sure, why not, it
wouldn't hurt, besides I am already lost and I'll need some guidance."
So the snake and the lamb take off on their journey to different places.

Years and days have past-by and the snake along with the lamb are
still traveling.

Lately, the lamb has been noticing that the snake is not as friendly
anymore, and all the things he has done with the other lambs and sheep's
in different places are starting to affect him. He feels very tired, about to
pass-out; it's weird, because he is still very young, but feels very old and

The lamb has realize that the snake is not going to help him find home.
He wants to leave the snake and search for his home alone. The lamb is
scared. He is afraid that he might get lost again and never find home.
He hopes that one day he will meet a Pastor, if not his, that could guide
him back home; where he could be safe and happy along with the rest
of the Pasture. He misses them!

Until that day arrives, the lamb is still traveling with "the snake that fell
from the tree in the night."

More time has passed, the lamb has grown into a sheep, a black sheep.
All alone away from home, with a snake that still looks the same, but acts
different. With a snake that is not going to take him home and he knows.
The journey still continues....
