The two houses

The two houses

A Poem by kjsa

.

"

This house of stone

protects me to the bone

never will i be someone's meal

nor ever see a wicked ordeal


Yet this house of stone 

will never be a humble abode

and one will die alone.


If one lives in a house of hay

the wolf will make you pay

Openness lets everyone in

even the one with the wicked grin


So the twins 

named life and death 

will always win


You can live life fully 

and meet death prematurely 

or let no one in

till death comes knock-in.

"So the twins
named life and death"
Wow, such powerful lines!I can see how the house may be inhabited, yet is still metaphorically empty. Your pictures paint a picture in my head. Well done!
