Anita's Poem


And our lives do indeed do the tango
to the music of God and the Devil.
Our lives dance to their music,
at the basic, vibrational level,
those frequencies that fix whether God's
or Devil's music plays to us,
or both in each of us.

    And our lives do indeed do the tango

    Our lives dance to their music,
    at the basic, vibrational level,
    those frequencies that fix whether God's
    or Devil's music plays to us,
    or both in each of us..yes both play the music but it is for us how we choose it...so nice theme and placed very nicely.....10

    Who put 1 vote to this poem. Atrocious! This is an extraordinary piece of expression of the link between man and the Two Ghosts(holy and unholy) . Superbly expressed.

    Dear Fred, Its really a very good piece. I like it. Devil is the negative part of life. If someone is under the command of devil he turns a devil. (Report) Reply

    Wow, interesting poem. It's really true, as well. Although I can imagine that some poeple would feel more affected by God, and some more by the Devil... I still have to decide which category I belong to^^ (Report) Reply
