Between heaven and hell
shadow or light
light is dark
hell is heaven
to the blind
what to choose
what to choose
can the heart
see the path
what feels good
to just draw
heaven or hell
in the place
and that’s all he has.

some choices are not easy… i usually make a pro and contra list when it comes to difficult choices and then listen to what my heart says…often it knows best….
ha. there are many choices between the two…and sometimes its hard to tell which will get you where…but we make the best we can in the moment…at other times they can seem so far away when we are in the now…
That’s the struggle of the human heart isn’t it? constantly deciding between the two sides?
So many choices to make, and even not making a choice is a choice as well ~ Sometimes in the moment its hard to make a choice when our heart is in bind or blind ~
and that’s all he has.” You’ve hit on something there… Enjoyed this a lot and will be back for more… With Best Wishes scott http://www.scotthastie.com
This speaks to me of the importance of some time for silent reflection before making important choices. Wouldn’t it be nice to see an algorithm of where each choice will take us, instead of in retrospect. And then there is free will.
Imelda this sounds like an undecided journey… I always follow the heart be it right or wrong,,, time always tells…
Decision is really hard when our heart is blind and our mind is closed.
It should be easy to make the right choice.. But there are always the pros and cons.. The thoughts of the should be.. And our blindness were heaven can be hell
So many choices….I always believe that following the heart and intuition are the best choices.
I always find the poems with very short verses nice to read but difficult to write – each word stands out so they all need to be perfectly chosen and placed… more choices, I suppose…
The depth of this simple poem captured my attention and made me think long and hard. That is a sign of good writing!
I read this a couple times and it made me stop and think. It does seem that sometimes the line between heaven and hell shifts in our minds, as if to justify the questionable choices we make.
An apt response to the prompt.
