Balancing Act

Balancing Act short poem

Photo by SashaW

Conviction is an illusion
to take your choice away
Belief is the act of choice
within the confines of an illusion
In life there is also death
to give balance to think you have a choice at all
The choice to live or die is simple
but the illusion gives us
on one hand the act
and on the other balance
