The Battle of the Mortals

The Battle of the Mortals

A Poem by Euphemia
"

a poem that describes the battle that we humans face every day, when we must chose to do what we feel is right and what we think is right.

"

Gathering beneath the night sky
Where only mortals dare tread
A power beyond even
The sheer imagination of the gods
Lurks in the hearts of men
Growing ever stronger
Even beyond the control
Of the human's very will
Racing towards a future
That is unforseen
Blindly following
The thoughts of a mind
That is bound by the shackles
Of uncertainty
Forever damned to wonder
Without a commmon conciousness
Thoughts racing, spinning out of control
Hard to pin them down
To even think straight
Emotions soaring, rising higher
Making it difficult
To identify which is stronger
A battle of the heart
Against one's own mind
Desire to prove that emotion is stronger
Than logic
Both holding their own
But neither winning the argument
And neither willing to conceid defeat

'A battle of the heart
Against one's own mind'

these lines are slightly confusing, your sortof saying my heart is battle itself and the mind. I know thats not what you meant but it doesn't read right maybe

'My heart and mind battle,
tears my soul apart.' i don't know if that is any better.

I is a very good poem apart from those last couple of lines

A timeless tell of Good and Evil. In a sense. To take what others have said and read even more, it's like looking on the world of today, Dreaming of a bright future, however just leaving a dark, cold, wet night to wounder alone. Mankind in this world have to live like this, just to survive... Which was once thought as Dreadful and Satanic, is now Gracious and Conic.
Thank you for posting.

Wow.. what a mix of emotions .. battle of heart against mind.. this is quite common and if common ground is not found.. it can be frustration and beyond!!! We sometimes feel something different with both.. which can leave is feeling ripped.. and confused... still part of life.. and most times we can find a compromise with both.. thank you very much for sharing.. I think alot can actually relate with this!! =)

I am a single mother. I love to listen to all kinds of music, and I love to write. Mostly to vent from a hard day, or when something is weighing heavy on my heart and mind. I get it off my chest. But .. more..
