Seeds

The demon came
and put a seed of doubt
in man's heart asunder.

It's plan?
Mankind to conquer.

The angel came,
flew down
and planted another.

This time, a seed
of hope and courage yonder.

Man was left to pick,
to choose, a side
to ponder.

Which side will you take,
I wonder?

For One Single Impression

Well done. I was writing about just this subject in a very different way this very morning. Good take on the prompt. Well done.

I love your interpretation on this. Food for thought.

In the fight between seeds of good and evil, I will always choose the weapon of HOPE.
