MAN

MAN 


Man:
A battlefield of,
The brute and the divine is,
The eternal and the temporal,
The vulgar and the sublime, 
The glorious and the heinous,
The blasphemous and the sanctified, 
Thus in,
His heart
His mind and 
His soul
The adversaries in perpetual
Combat remain  
And
Pending on the winner, 
A demon, Man turns out to be, 
Or 
He becomes a saint!

    You have an interesting outlook on life I enjoy your poems. Seems as we get older, we query the unknown.

    The battle within oneself as to who one would lean towards, a demon or a saint! We all hope that the saint part will win over, but it doesn't always work that way sometimes! I really enjoyed your well thought out write here Demetrios! Thank you for sharing this illustrious poem today! What an inspiring piece, Great Work!!

    It' s a great thing of beauty when he is more like a saint. If only mankind knew how important they could be in the world just by learning this one simple fact.

    You are so right. Man can be all that. I don't want a demon, but I don't want a saint either. I prefer someone in between. Thanks for sharing...... Lucilla
