A Poem by Leo

Would you rather resist or submit

Letting go of skyscraping sorrow

Floating instead and gazing at the moonlit

Smoking Havana cigars like Marlon Brando

 

Would you rather indulge or abstain

Knowing earthly pleasures are temporary

Cleansing instead and no longer in vain

Climbing heaven’s ladder no imaginary

 

Would you rather cower or stand out

Fight till death and earn what’s yours

Quenching your soul thirst against drought

Persisting and knocking on all doors

 

Would you rather complain or create

Turning your pain into permanent fuel

Mastering your life game into a checkmate

Using the creator as your power tool

It’s the best to be on the lord’s favor side by keeping away from what makes us fall short of his glory.
“Would you rather indulge or abstain
Knowing earthly pleasures are temporary
Cleansing instead and no longer in vain
Climbing heaven’s ladder no imaginary”
Great poem to cleanse the heart

Appreciate the read and feedback. Bblessed
You are so right and on the money. Choices in life are one of the hardest things to make because to get them wrong, we have to bear the consequences and they can be painful. You give us those sets of choices with dynamic word choices.

Thanks for your review
I very much like the way you pose these questions, a unique set for each stanza, & using dynamic verbs to lay out the choices. Your probing questions are universal & important to consider in every life. You express yourself in original ways & your message is relatable. Your questions tend to steer a person into a preferred direction, even tho you don’t do it in a preachy way at all (((HUGS))) fondly, Margie

Questions that everyone has faced at some point in their lives. I enjoyed it. The poem was small and simple, but it serves as a reminder of the choices we have: to either live our lives in constant suffering or make something of ourselves and move passed our troubles. I know I can at least relate to it. Long story short, I liked it. :)
