I can feel them bickering on my shoulder.

Back and forth, back and forth.

Right from Wrong

Good and Evil

Both seem so right.

Points are made from each.

I yell and tell them to stop.

My voice is merely a whisper.

They over power my every thought or word.

What am I to do?

Do I shut up and listen?

Do I drink them away?

Maybe if I yell louder.


They continue.

More troubled I get.

Right and Wrong are now mended together.

I’m imprisoned in my own head.
