2 Boys

One boy agreed to do a certain chore,
but weaseled out. A second boy declined
but then reversed himself, and did far more
than he was asked. This study was designed
to show, within the mind a split exists,
whose contradictory dispute explains
why indecision seems to lock our wrists,
and paltry half ounce issues wreck our brain.
Two sides of self - one postures rectitude,
but has his own agenda cloaked from view.
The other shows the world an attitude,
but when his duty calls, he follows through.
The precious prize of wisdom's light awaits
those brave enough to tame their inner fates.
