TITLE: Two Forces

I find myself between two forces,
Being pulled in two different,
Opposite directions.

Which way do I go, which path do I take?
My flesh says this way, my spirit says no.
One leads to death, the other to life.
Must take these thoughts captive,
Or find myself hostage.

I find myself between two forces,
Being pulled in two different,
Opposite directions.

One leads to freedom, the other to bondage.
My courage is failing, the fear is assailing!
My spirit is willing, this flesh is weak.
One seems wrong, the other right.
Could I have this backwards?

I find myself between two forces,
Being pulled in two different,
Opposite directions.

Do I stand here firm, or do I run?
My spirit says stand and fight,
My flesh says runÖTake flight!
Where do I go to find the answers?
Who do I trust, who do I turn to?

I find myself between two forces,
Being pulled in two different,
Opposite directions.

They say He is the Way,
He is the Truth, and
He is the Life,
Could He
Be the answer?

I find myself between two forces,
Being pulled in two different,
Opposite directions.

Itís not about me?
Not by my power or might,
But what He does for me,
And what He does through me?
Could that be the answer?

I find myself between two forces,
Being pulled in two different,
Opposite directions.

If the battle is His, then my fight is over,
The battle is won, the victory sure!
He shows me the Way, I follow.
He reveals the Truth, I listen.
Now my Life is secure!

I am no longer
Being pulled in two different,
Opposite directions.

Ah yes, I'm familiar with the predicament of these two opposite forces!

Nicely done.

I really enjoyed this. It is a lovely flowing piece that shouts the truth.

A lovely poem that flowed well and one that we all can identify with. Well done!

A wonderful piece of writing. I really liked that the "two forces" stanza was repeated throughout and then answered at the end ... with us no longer being pulled in two different directions. It really took the reader on a journey. Nice work!

You have expressed familiar truth well in verse.

This was quite good.

You could put it to music. Well written piece. I wouldn't mind putting it in a church bulletin.
