To a Temptress

Along the fruited plains, it seems
that I have recalled quite the dream.
Despite what others may have said,
here I stand, innerly dead.
I couldn't foresee this turn of events,
or that my life was filled with such suspense.
As per, my call to arms,
I dare not wish to cause them harm.
For just across the valley there,
gazes a more feared enemy, both common and rare.
It lives, despite what others may say,
and stares us all down everyday.
But choose to look back, this we could do,
and risk placing the burden on you.
But the fact that choice is what we seek,
leaves this gazing temptress low and weak.
Which gives me the power to say,
live life, but, have a great day.
