The Lover, The Fighter And The Thinker - Poem by Yoni Assis

“Pick your poison, ” says the Lover. “Heart or pride, one or the other.”

“Surely you jest, ” replies the Fighter. “Following your heart is always what’s best.”

“Love is overrated, ” counters the Thinker. “Pride, unabated.”

“Nothing in life comes easy, ” reminds the Lover. “Without sacrifice, why bother? ”

“Foolish pride will not get in the way of my desires, ” says the Fighter. “Mistakes happen, throw them to the fires.”

“Time doesn’t heal all wounds, ” notes the Thinker. “No matter what you do, I just won’t swoon.”

“A grave mistake you make, ” answers the Lover. “You’ll end up regretting it one day soon.”

“Let him surrender, ” implores the Fighter. “His obvious blunder can get us further.”

“Yes, I surrender, ” retorts the Thinker. “But lest you think I’ll regret it one bit later.”
