Enemy

Enemy short poem

Enemy out side of you is myth
But
Enemy within you is reality

An outsider who deceives you
is labelled as Enemy
But
the insider in you which
deceives your conscience is never
thought of as your enemy

An enemy whom you think can be your destroyer
will never destroy you
But
the so called part of you whom you never
think can harm you is the real destroyer of you

None ties contacts with out side Enemies
But
Unaware contacts is established with inside
of your Enemy

Enemy out side may disappear one day
But
Enemy within you remains for ever

It is wise to destroy the Enemy within by making him
agree to act according to conscience rather then
trying to eliminate Enemy outside of you

She smiles in your face so pretty, But her intentions are dirty, Because behind your back it’s another story, And she talks out your business like it was history, So stop telling her things about you that are confidential, Because
