One Shot

What can a person do when raised by words on different page?

I’ve said it once before and once again it I will say

My father was the devil, but my mother was a saint

They made half a demon, half an angel, when they mixed my DNA

Knowing this is how I keep the things I think in check

Awareness is what holds the dark from rising o’er my neck

Control the mind, control the soul: a life’s philosophy

One to learn from, it applies: to all, and not just me

For you and I? No different – just products of our age

We share the wins. The losses, too. The happiness and rage

Become the person of your dreams – the one you always thought

The Game of Life is not forgiving. It gives you this: one shot.
