To Be A Snake, Or To Be A Dragon

To be a snake

Or to be a dragon

That is the question

Two kinds of darkness

Two different paths

A choice to make

M

What of the snake

The options are clear

To fail is to die

To succeed is to live

Striving to be the best

With no one above

M

What of the dragon

Options become less clear

Exploits to control

Potent words having effect

World shattering events

A choice to change

M

What of the snake

Self motivation is key

There is no team

There is only I

Life is being alone

Having nobodies problems

M

What of the dragon

Moving among them

Controlling their paths

Adjusting destiny

Changing the dance

Belonging somewhere

M

What of the snake

Mistakes never made

To be above all

That is destiny

Security is never lost

That is life complete

M

What of the dragon

Out of grace falling

But constantly uprising

To be fulfilled are dreams

of hope and desires

Though dark they may be

M

What of the snake

Jealous of others

Wanting to seize

There is now ours

Thieving at times

Coniving at times

M

What of the dragon

Ours is to protect

To keep from harm

To never forget

Seizing back

Rarely sharing

M

What of the snake

Blood runs cold

Not an ounce of heat

Not a care at all

Self is life abound

Self prevails over all

M

What of the dragon

Blood too runs cold

But a heart of fire

Just rarely not seen

True self is hidden

There is no one to trust

M

What of the snake

Evil to the end

Darkness is the core

No light comes forth

Pain caries forth

With each poisonous bite

M

What of the dragon

Darkness surrounding

Prevailing in course

Until decision is made

Light then let in

The pain destroyed

M

A choice to make

Two different paths

Two kinds of darkness

That is the question

To be a snake


Author's note - This is for all the people wondering if Draco Malfoy really is good or bad and whether he'll make the choice to change in the book. Those looking at the publication date, I planed on writing this and posting it before the seventh book came out. But as of when I wrote and posted this I have not yet had a chance to read the book. The idea came from the meaning of the Latin word that Draco's name comes from, it means both snake and dragon, both which are very different, but both reptilian.
