Heaven or Hell


demon or cherub
you who held me fast
against foes most fierce
who gave me a name
sword and shield—purpose to fight

angel or devil
this force that lifts me
in spite of my wrongs
from hungering depths
to plateaus of sweet mana

to heaven or hell
do I swear fealty
you’ve strengthened my hands
now give me eyes to see
my benefactor’s cloaked face…

  1. Just superb…in every possible way. I love the contrast between good and evil. The choices and options that we can take, it’s a thin line between doing what we see as right and taking the road that’s least painful.
