Enemy Within

Enemy Within prose poem

Photo by naturalflow

Good and evil
resides in
us all.
Both look out
our eyes.
Both course
through our veins.

The spectrum of
us is a score
played out
in our hearts
and in our minds.

Evil and good are in
opposition, spread out
on a spectrum a
blur in between.

Good and evil are relative,
dictated by events in part.

Dictated by beliefs and story.

One mans good deed
is another’s
abomination.

Evil and good are one
in the same.

Opposite sides
of the same coin.
Embedded on our soul.
