Devils Within

“It's a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways ” – Siddhartha Buddha

Our friends we follow willingly and happily enemies we scorn but we of conscience know best our devils come from within Listen, be aware there’s a right path and a wrong refuse to give in heavenly voices guide us to eternal salvation

    What a wonderful write my friend! I rather enjoyed this poem immensely! This write is delightful, grandiose, and knowingly awesome! I believe you certainly spoke the truth! We do know what we are doing and whether or not if it's right or wrong! We have the evil side and the holy side within us...and we must choose on a daily basis! And choosing Holiness will allow your choices to become easier and easier, the same for evil as well! We must choose wisely! Love your poem Carolyn! Great Work!!

    Yes. The Buddha also said something like, you are exactly where you have put yourself. Blame no other. Good write, Carolyn. Love, daver
