Where Credit is Due > Joni Mitchell
There are trails around the world and life,
That traverse a perilous ledge…
One misstep means certain death;
Tumbling over the edge.
The cliff side paths, a metaphor,
At times for my daily life…
One step and then another,
On the blade of a razor sharp knife.
We seek out holds and bannisters,
To protect us from slips and fails…
Joni for half a century,
Furnished my life with safety rails.
Often when betrayed or beaten,
Her lyrics, verbatim, I’d recall…
There was never a crisis prevented,
Yet her albums softened the fall.
