Virtuous


Veering off the path 
impulsive volition
violates
God's plan

~versus~

vehemence
blind faith
victory
one step at a time.

Which will you choose?

That is the choice, isn't it? Excellent write.

Isabel said...

it is a choice all must choose each day.but I do think indulging a little is a good thing.

Mary said...

Nicely written. Lots to think about. As for me, I would support 'faith' but not necessarily 'blind faith.' Just me.

Laurie!
Great minds followed the same path, told the tale quite differently. How synchronous of us!

Rest assured if there is a God, and he has a plan for me, it will involve brimstone. I'll take the other one.

I'm a big fan of volition myself though it's often led me in circles, nice contrast between the two stanzas.

Pithily and very effectively put, kiddo! Love it!

Ouch, what a stumper of a question!
Oooh, what a cracker of a poem!

Interesting take and...I'm thinking about my answer, Laurie. :)I like poems that make me think.

What a difficult choice you've presented us with, Laurie!

Doesn't God grant us free will? I think I'd choose the path down the middle!
