Sonnet: Life’s Dilemma - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

I’m caught between the twain of God/money!
Between my duty and my selfishness;
Between life’s bitterness and it’s honey;
Between my charity and greediness.

I’m caught between my honesty and lies!
Between my ambitions and sacrifice;
Between life’s virtues, evils/ bad advice;
Between good deeds and bad ones that entice.

I’m caught between my pangs of sin/good deeds;
Between material things and those divine;
Between corporeal and of soul’s needs;
Between the calls of God and thoughts of mine.

I’m caught between the devils and my God!
’Tween Hell and Heaven’s Eternal reward.
