Neither One Nor The Other - Poem by shimon weinroth

curses and blessings are both oaths,
for good or bad, glad and sad
the will to have and be had
appeals, to God and his creations

by use of word and sacrifice
say and signify
live or die, happiness or sigh
for now and the future

deeds to be done, success to be won
demand to reign and rule
stack the cards of sequence
determine fate and destiny
usurp both god and chance

designs of long ago
I have resigned, from will, to power
still from time to time
in weakness or revenge, bleat out
God help me, and from sin
