lefthand heavy

– brianprince

i raised the right hand
to God. He met me half
way and took it
graciously.

i lowered the left
to the devil.
hE yanked it before i
could become hesitant.

suddenly
i was the victim of
tug-o-
spiritual-war.

weighing the criticisms of each. receiving an even score.

God gently let go
knowing
i would return
with
a lesson learned.

the devil was clever
and never
let hIs knuckles
turn less than
white.

claiming this is all there is.
one life to live.

and now i learned my lesson
and want what’s right
to receive
heaven.

but i can’t because
hE won’t let go
as hE grips
my ring.

as hE explains
gravity.
