Virtue

Choice is the bane of Virtue's existance;
Choice can lead the good man astray,
But sooner or later that man must pay;
If he should choose to dance the Devil's dance.

Virtue in Love, Love in Virtue,
Choice always comes between these two;

So many choices, like so many gems,
Each possibility glitters and gleams.
Though in choosing one I could shatter dreams,
Uncertainty's door Choice always opens.

Yet the final choice, as ever, falls unto you,
Cast off doubt and do what your heart would have you do.

    Dear Alexander thank you for your initial invite. So I decided to read Virtue. Nice....
    I will take this opportunity to say 'I.m New ' at this and upon my first thought of Virtue it was not best. I felt it off beat with the rhythm. This is all very well and good but, since I have not as yet read any other of your poems my judgement is quick with little undrstanding of your style. All that is said to say I read it again & again... I love the last line. Niiicee, Thank you for the invite and I will in time read others.
