Edge Of Evil - Poem by Daya Nandan

Evil is a blade with a thirst for blood,
Evil is poison causing feeble minds to flood,
Drowning souls in in their weakness for emotions,
Deeper and deeper in the unholy oceans,

Evil lives within us, it is part of our being,
Evil is the hidden demon that hatred is feeding,
Evil is a part of human nature that must always be kept at bay,
For evil brings nothing else besides death and decay,

Evil can control us when we break down rationality's wall,
As the walls of rationality break, our greatest virtues fall,
And then our mind becomes possessed with evils of the time,
Most of them based on negative emotions that combine,

Anger, hatred, vengeance, and greed tend to trigger the weak mind,
Leads one to a path of sin, with only a trail of regret to find,
Some mistakes last for moments while others last till the day you die,
Some plant the seed of evil in the new generation, some make innocents cry,

Fact is that we become a product of the choices that we make,
Whether we chose to feed our vices or virtues determines the path we take,
Whether we become a manifestation of our vices that weigh us down,
Or a divine creation of the many virtues that we wear as a crown,

A decision we have to make based on our thoughts and circumstance,
A combination of instinct and education giving the mind a stance,
Evil must be vanquished from our minds for it will put us on a ledge,
Evil will make us feel satisfied while it prepares to slash us with it's edge,

So, feed the good within as it will grow to protect and shield our minds,
We will be protected against the edge of evil that clouds and blinds,
Dodge the edge of evil, never let it consume and corrupt our soul,
For evil is seductive when we are weak, evil can swallow us whole!
