Dark Angel

Some have called me dark and gothic.
Some have called me an angel.
Confusing me to no end.
Maybe I was born with twin souls.
Two faces, two personalities.
So different from each other, yet one in the same.
Like Jekyll & Hyde.
One cannot live without the other, nor can I escape it.
I guess I was born and doomed on the same day.
To be me, this dark angel.
Combined opposites, intertwining into one single identity.
I am not evil and I am not good.
I am far away from heaven, yet just as far away from hell.
I am in-between the two.
And I don't know which way to go.
Won't someone help me?

    Thank you for stopping by, Ron. I do appreciate it!.... By the way, my birthday is March, 4th. So, that makes me a Pisces.

    Hi Paul. I agree with you, it is better to have a little of both, rather than too much of one side....Thank you very much for stopping by. I do appreciate it! :)

    Hi Kelly, once more , a most interesting write from you. There is no need to choose a way to go. We all have both inside us, the good and the bad, some of us discard as much of the bad as we can but it is always there. To be dark and Gothic does not mean to be bad. Myself, I Love the dark and Gothic and most people think of me as the good guy. I do like the way you put this down as a conundrum though. So you've solved it, be a Dark Angel. I am a Dark Man.The greatest light can come from the dark

    Thank you so much for the wonderful comments, Mike! I agree, being dark and Gothic does not always mean that you are evil. I am so glad that you understand that!

    Kelly What an intense, deep and emotional write. I think everyone is conflicted sometimes on who they are and meant to be. Nice job my friend Thanks for the awesome comment on my Christmas Tale poem. Hugs

    A piece that will leave many of us questioning our own plights for how many of us are indeed perfect - none I'd guess... We need open our hearts and minds and be accepting to work on putting things right... we will still make mistakes but does that make us evil? I don't think so I think it just makes us human and we can only continue in trying to be the best we possibly can and put right our wrongs where we see them... The two main things to look to in my humble opinion are love and forgiveness.

    You can be both (dark and Gothic, and an Angel) and still go to Heaven. But if you be one of the two, there is a 50 % chance not to go. :) G.
