    Assertive, calm and collective, seeming at peace,
    an illusion I've become so creative with.
    Rampage of thoughts, stirring doubt and unrest,
    crashing waves against the walls of my mind.

    Constant thoughts..........

    Would love to do this,
    would love to do that.

    Waves smashing, banging, battle commence.
    Do I do what feels good? Or do whats right?
    Confusion has engulfed me.

    Pure and impure thoughts are at war, each inflict their
    wounds.

    Headache erupts.

    Impure send its subliminal messages,
    roll...... with the flow,
    ride the waves, relax and lay into them.

    Pure gives its opinion, the waves hold pain, embarassment,
    a mirage of love.
    Emotional scars that may never heal.
    Don't surrender to your immoral desires.
    Steadfast with integrity and self respect,
    the future holds a love that will cease the crashing waves.

    Morals has won.

    The soothing caress of self esteem has settle the waves.
    My reflection in the mirror wears not a frown of disappointment,
    but a smile, from the knowledge that I've made the correct decision.

    A moral dilemma

    that most of us would face on a near daily basis..

    sometimes it can be so hard to be so good...
    cause sometimes goin the other way can be soooo much fun..

    but...

    why do we have to fight
    against who we are

    why do we employ illusion
    to create confusion
    when HAPPY
    is all we wanna be

    WHY

    why ask why
    is a sarcastic
    reply
    to an impending
    LIE

    PURE?

    IMPURE?

    is that the question
    is this the WAR message
    pitting
    good against bad
    when good is something
    i've never had

    RELATE

    how can i relate
    to integrity and self-respect
    when
    all my years
    i've seen neglect
    sink its fangs
    in the contentment
    of life
    while right
    impregnated strife
    and the battle was joined.

    LET THE FIGHT BEGIN.:(

    Kitana~ That is so true.....I see some of my friends who seem to be having so much fun, but then, they're probably having their own Moral Combat going on in their heads.:)

    Baller~ I adore your responses. Thank you. :)
