the road

i walk down the road,
cutting in half,
evil. good.
the sky, half and half.
one side is blood red.
the other is angelic blue.
the thunder cracks viciously.
the echo roars on for miles and miles and miles.
i look toward the ground on the evil side.
the weak crawl on the dirt while the strong keep them there.
they scream out,
full of pain and anguish they have suffered at the hands of the utterly corrupted.
the corrupt laugh out loud,
the pain of their victims amuse them
temptation pulls me towards the darkness.......
but then,
my eyes snap to the good, trying to capture all of its worth.
the sun shines down
upon the faces.
the pure
the untainted
the blessed


each one person looks after
the other.

laughter all around.
love
warmth
family
togetherness

Smiles
bright and shining
actions
healthy and warm.


just happiness, all.
now i must choose.....

the evil side
grants
money
power
women
and no rules




OR




the good side




which grants





love





family





warmth





and




peace of mind



which should i choose?

what would you?

I'm your teacher, but I still wanted to post!  This was one of my favorites of yours in your portfolio!  Doesn't it feel good to be published?!
