Upper Hand

Free will and choice, we think we know,
the high road calls our name.
But man's destruction arises low
in a part we just can't tame.

And evil's there, in quiet repose,
we rap it's hollow door.
And here we sit for what we chose
as they tally the final score.

Of all the battles we fought within,
none matter but the last.
An epic struggle set to begin
from which our destiny is cast.

In the afterlife of death's staid pale,
too late to take a stand,
will eternity be in heaven or hell?
We must await the upper hand.

    I am honored to be the first to comment. This is really really good. If it was up to man unfortunately we would all be heading to hell. I am thankful for a God who sacrificed his Son so that I may live, a gift I gladly and thankfully accept. A lot to ponder in this well crafted poem. Blessings, Rick
