This poem is about the journey of life. We have to do decisions, we have instincts, and we have to choose, between one and another. And it's about my personal experience in a way

Every step I take,
I hear the noise it makes,
crushing the dead leaves that lay on the ground,
a destructive sound.


Alone in the journey,
nothing but myself to accompany me,
I have to be strong,
I have to brave,
in the end it’s me I have to save.


The darkness comes during times,
at others light,
balance is rarely found.


When the light shines,
I am just merely a reflection,
and the darkness inside craves to take over.


Then, when it finally takes control,
the light within my tries to shine,
but it’s locked,
knocking on the doors of darkness,
for it to have mercy,
for them to rule together.


I finally realise,
it’s not one or the other,
it’s not one and the other,
it’s me.


Their amounts change within my heart and mind,
but it’s only me that inside me you can find,
I have the control, I am the leader.
The power is only mine.


The abilities I have,
to unleash the demons of hell,
or call the angels from heaven,
or just be human and just be me,
they contain lots of responsibility.


So I choose,
to not care too much,
to be free from the slavery of thoughts,
just act as myself,
and don’t try to be anybody else,
for I love myself just for who I am,
and I love myself more than I love anyone else.
