When one feels so different from the rest
They seek in life to find their quest,
There are two roads to travel on
Yes two sides of this coin

Now fear is placed in the light,
and looked upon with such spite
As the dark live in content,
believing nothing is heaven sent
They don't worry if they do wrong,
no commandments have they to anyone
Just them selves have they to serve,
as long as life is spent on earth

While the light, they serve to live in grace
To see the beauty of the pearly gates,
and pray their names are etched in stone
So behind the gates, they can make their home

Many a year, in century's past
have consumed this question
: today still asked?
Why some choose light and some choose dark ?
And its still a matter for the heart
Beliefs, are such a funny thing
The echo's of our beckoning's

As we have read, everyone,
we were given choice, to act upon...
And choice is what separates,
the light and dark of every fate
"Never question" is the quote,
yet man kind seems to rock this boat
As all fail at this request
It is the questions that get the best

There two sides of this coin,
One has Died for all man kind
Through his Death the light does shine
One was evicted from God's throne,
it is in the darkness he makes his home
To some the Death , does play a part
of every fiber in there heart
And some choose dark as they are weak,
the strength of evicted one is what they seek
Difference, acceptance, their own choice,
yet they long to hear the voice
Of that one to whom they gave their soul,
whom in the end will have control
that beautiful angle, God did hold
And in the end when all is through,
the gates of Hell they'll run too
‘Tis then their master they shall meet
face to face as burn in greed,
destined for eternity

As the Maker, the Creator, of all who are
will feast and gaze on all his stars
As they burn bright above the clouds
Where darkness, is never allowed

Oh, so here again you ask.
What will become of us when we pass?
Why some choose light and some choose dark?
Let's find a simple way to start.

The light it shines on unending roads
A kingdom come they have been told
with streets that are lined with sold gold,
where wings of white will unfold

The dark can not see where it is they go
Tis only in life, riches they'll know
holding only what they grasp,
No hopes of power from earth will last

It is in life that we take heed
to chose what's right, or what we need
Only what we build can we seek ...
As we hold the tools to whom we meet

Living hand and hand, yet separately
Not ever on this earth will we see
Why some choose light and some choose dark
It is still, a matter for the heart

Darkness is my choice.
