Making The Right Decision - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Imperfect is this world,
So full of challenges;
It brings hardships, trials,
Temptations and stresses.

Making the correct choices
Is the top thing to do;
Promoting virtuous values
Is not at the bottom too.

Success seems not prestige,
Neither new cars nor fame;
True triumph tells to be
Freed from eternal flame.

Satan and his corrupt cohorts
Stalk the path of the believer;
They often offer enticement,
Luring him far from the Father.

Wage war against the devil,
Though he is determined;
So shrewd as he may be,
Holding your ground to win.

A blessing or a curse,
Second death or salvation;
Choose between good and bad,
Making the right decision.

    Wow! You are so very good at explaining things explicitly and honestly! I totally appreciate it, your poetry is very refreshing and I love reading it, your messages come through strong and clear! Your rhythm is impeccable, rhyming superb! Yes, we must always fight evil lest we be cursed and taken away from our Lord. One thing check typo on the word Imperpect - should be imperfect. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
