Hand

by Monica Sherlock

Whose hand are you holding
God or Satan 
Love or hate
Fear or faith
Happiness or sadness
Creativity or destruction
Sunsets or storm
Grief or joy
Freedom or bondage
Flowers or weeds
Beauty or darkness
Heaven or hell
Stretch your hand to God like a child picking up daises
Or you pick up thrones to feel pain
The choice is yours
Who do you follow
Whose hand are you holding
Satan or God
