Willpower

Willpower

A Poem by Tabby Mac

They are in the shadows
Watching, waiting, anticipating
Lurking, searching
Looking to pounce
But, not in a hurry
Slowly and surely
A confident stride
As they step inside
When your lonely, or not your best
When you see a pretty lady or handsome gent
When another has what you expect
When you lack someone's respect
That's when they take their chance
That's when they start their dance
Once in your head like a fast sprouting seed
They marinate,
Then multiply,
They start to succeed
Deeper and deeper they take you
How far sometimes one never knows
Before its too late that is
When a one night stand finds you alone
Or your marriage is broken as well as your home
A friend is lost
And at what cost?
A thought wouldn't you say?
That is how it all started...
This dismay.
Can we give ourselves that much credit?
To think such things even when we had never said it?
Where was the thought birthed?
That is my question?
And how did it lead into action?
I am implying. Yes, you are right.
What if these thoughts are brought on by
Well...let's call them sprites
Silly yes,
maybe absurd...
Call it then a little bird!
Something had to plant it there!!
It's like it appeared out of no where!
But either way I think we can agree...
That, a stronger mind there must be!

Hmmm.... What a cost indeed Tabby.
You are getting better and better at bringing your soul out onto the paper and I love it.
Take care and God bless.

You're so right.. all actions begin somewhere, somehow..
We don't even realize seeds have sprouted anywhere until we look around and see a whole field has sprung up where once was a vacant lot.. clever and cute little wordplay on this notion. :)

The oldest dance known to man... the Waltz, or perhaps more fittingly, the tango, between will power and temptation. There are many steps, there is a balance... but it is always best I think when will power leads. Very very well penned. I see a lot of talent here and a beauty in the words, my friend. Glen x

Thoughts... sometimes difficult to ignore and many times misinterpreted by both parties as situations progress. Not always easy to walk away from either. Not a situation we search for but one we need to watch out for :) enjoyed your thoughts here

We all are tempted by something, sometimes destructive, sometimes not. Great message in this beautifully rhyming little gem. It's always a pleasure to read your work! :) Julie

Yes 1 thought is where it all starts! Do we let it linger or do we throw it away? I love the way you write, and the innocent yet sly smile.

The willpower to resist all that tempts each and and everyone. The strength to see the difference between which will lose and which will gain. Once embroiled in the consequence it's origin so difficult to find. Very well done!
