The Duality of Me

Two voices, each sweetly beckoning

Siren songs leading me down opposite paths

To my left, a barren wasteland full of fire

To my right, the Elysian Fields await

These opposing forces , a constant battle of wills

Human nature wars within, and I, the casualty

Is man truly the quintessence of dust?

The bestial nature of my mortality weighing me down

Even as angelic hands lead my soul into the light

I am forever lost to the duality of me.
