Enemy Within

poem by: JG Collins
Written on Jul 16, 2017

Good and evil
resides in 
us all.
Both look out
our eyes.
Both course 
through our veins.

The spectrum of
us is a score
 played out
in our hearts 
and  in our minds.

Evil and good are in
opposition, spread out
on a spectrum a
blur in between. 

Good and evil are relative,
dictated by events in part.

Dictated by beliefs and story.

One mans good deed 
is another's
abomination. 

Evil and good are one
in the same. 

Opposite sides 
of the same coin.

Embedded on our soul.
