What’s Evil And What’s Good

It barely has been understood
that each of us hold inside
what’s evil and what’s good
it’s left to us to decide

After which we will follow
as the other we forsake
 and the reward may be hollow
based on the choice we make

There are angels assigned to guard
and protect us along the way
but our life will be hard
if with the demons we play

As Dr. Jekyll can only wait
for the coming of Mr. Hyde
I think that he must contemplate
how to retain his better side

When there’s evil and there’s good
that walks around us everywhere
to make the choices we should
will leave no time to spare

I pray that you will choose
the offer that God has made
for with Jesus you can’t lose
when the price He’s already paid!

    1. Thanks you Charles! Isn’t that what life is about, choice? We make them every day, many times thoughtlessly of their consequences. I like to give food for thought whenever I can🙂 I’ll check out your poem next. Peace

  1. Praises to the King. Beautiful poem, this line stood out strong to me, “to make the choices we should
    will leave no time to spare”

  3. We certainly see the words of your poem in the lives of the heroes of Scripture, do we not? There is a Jekyll and Hyde in the best of us and only with the Lord’s help can we save the one from the other. Nice poem.
