Divided Loyalties - Poem by T.. Veronica

When placed between two loyalties
And a choice needs to be made
Reason and logic disappear
And simplicity starts to fade.

Once the decision has been made,
A line has now been crossed
I have the sense to recognize
A side that is now lost

The more I try to do the right
The harder I seem to fall
You have no idea the strength it takes
To try and remain standing tall.

At the cost of everything I hold dear
I will continue to walk this path
And though I know it will anger many,
I am ready to face their wrath.

    Thank you for commenting on my work Taryn slowly going through yours and I like what I see good rhyming schemes! I have noticed that when I read one poet it tends in a subconcious way to influence my own work, though I wouldnt notice until I look back on it so now I read small peices of many poets and I end up with a contrasting style. I loved the Idea behind the poem as well as your words. Well done. Seamus (Report) Reply
