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!

    it’s left to us to decide
