The battle of two

The battle of two

A Poem by Stephen

A struggle ensues, 

a battle rages! 
it's for my soul,
the two engages

Valuable is this soul, 
to the two involved
they use their tactics, 
gaining the soul they are resolved

The soul opens to, 
the one it chooses 
to rule it's life,
the other it refuses

Very tempted,
is the soul
to accept the flesh,
but it must pay it's toll

for it goes not without price, 
your soul you must lose
that is the payment, 
that is the flesh's ruse

He gives you the world,
and temporary desires fufilled 
success is his campaigner,
hope by him is instilled

but when life ends, 
where is he?
where's the gifts given?
will it come with thee?
in the grave, 
is where it will all be..

Who is the other you ask?
it's the spirit you see
the spirit of man, 
he offers eternity

Give him your soul, 
and he will make you free
for it's heaven 
that he offers thee

~~ i agree... ~~ a human being's spirit is the most important part of a human being... for it alone holds the key to one's well-being... ~~ we take nothing with us when we die... and even if we leave things behind... people who matter tend to remember the spirit with which we lived...
