The Struggle - Poem by Mikha'il Na'ima

The Devil entered my heart, and in it saw an angel.
And in the twinkling of an eye a violent fight broke out between them.
One said, This house is mine!
and the other said it was his,
while i witness what goes on, without the slightest move,
Asking my lord: Is there in all creation a god besides you,
whose hand, together with yours, fashioned my heart from the beginning?
And untill today i see myself in doubt and confusion,
Not knowing whether in my heart is a demon or an angel.
