Of Good and Evil

Of Good and Evil

A Poem by sonnie ibadah

In all the stories that were ever told, 
Of how legends rise and fairytales unfold, 
Nothing is ever quite as it seems, 
For an evil Queen was once a maiden with broken dreams. 

Unlike for the guise of mortal fear,
It could be a big friendly wolf and the little malevolent deer, 
But would nature ever deem it so? 
That the monster turns friend, and the hero turns foe?

Oh yes indeed. Or are we all evil queen / maiden with broken dreams, we are all big friendly wolf / malevolent deer? I love how you turn everything on its head - we need more often to question the seeming correctness of the status quo!

Thank you Cherrie.
there is always this dilemma of good and bad and we become so judgemental that we hurt the ones who love us the most..And the pain of a friend turning into a foe...I know that..always fairytales have a happy ending but in real life there is no such one the most disappointing fact! And ya people are not born as devil people , circumstances and society makes them do soo and we must try and understand and change our perspectives ..... Such a deep and impressive poem!!!! loved it !! Just too amazing........

Quite thought-provoking. It reminds me of all the movies I've watched in which a seemingly "good" character suddenly changes stripes and becomes a villain. It happens in real life, too, as we all should know.

So true. Thank you for your review :)
Happens all too often I'm afraid. Circle of life maybe?

Loved this. Quite thought provoking with wonderful imagery.

Lurking behind even the most placid person surely must be an evil deed just waiting to come out.
Probably why the human mind is so complex.
Every time I find a woman's shoe in the street, I must admit, the last thing on my mind is I need to find that girl and marry her.

This reminds me of the two snow white and the huntsman movies, where even the evil queen was once an innocent who was turned to the darkside by the evil surrounding her/ us.
Really like the flow of this piece, which runs effortlessly from line to line 😀
