A Choice: A Poem That I Just Wrote

Edited by me. Source: weareontv.blogspot.com
two weigh you down
one on each shoulder
clutching your skin
pulling hard
it's a game of tug of war
between yourself


one is devilish
it's gleaming green eyes gazing at the target
a sinister look on it's face
it's skin so pale 
strung with cracks of red
 scars
it's heinous doings have made it's beauty fade away
this one is the master of the tricks
not very powerful
just extremely cunning


the other is the one known to be
kind
she dresses in a cloak of white
 for white is known to be pure
 a smile takes up her face
she uses her convincing words
to pull you in
but to help you
she's an empathetic one, she understands


tug of war is tough
sometimes the rope
begins to break
the threads that make it unwind
snap!
the devilish one pulls you in
you're too tired to resist
prepare for future burdens
for you chose easy instead of right

  5. This poem made me visualise the devil and angel of your consciousness sitting on each shoulder like in a Disney movie, but at the end it became all to realistic. We choose the easy path that may burden our future, and that's never a good thing.

  6. This is an amazing poem, I love how you said "easy instead of right" because that is exactly what we do, we don't often make the wrong choices because we know they're wrong, just because they are easier than doing the right thing, its very powerful.

    1. Thank you! It's true that we just choose the easy path. But in reality the easy path is "hard"
