A blooming rose is made more beautiful by its thorns. It is a contradiction of joy and sorrow.


 

 

I am the red rose plucked from a stem,

I am pierced with ironic thorns,

I am pierced with thorns,
 

I am pierced,

I am.


An idiot holds his bauble for a god

His Folly brings sorrow,

  Free him now,

Free him,

Free.


If sin then comes back again,

It is a dangerous thing,

Kill it quickly.

Kill it,

Kill.



Drive a stake through its heart,

Burn it with a gasoline fire,

Destroy it totally

Destroy it,

Destroy.


Trouble lives in the heartbeat of a fool,

His dance mix drumz redrum,

Murda Murda Jesus,

Murda Jesus,

Murda.



Satan the Prince of Darkness,

Jesus the light of the world,

Jesus is the light,

Jesus is,

Jesus.

I like the form and the message, a poem that makes me think and that's good.

Thanks, Regis. I sure did make those typos. Lol. Gosh, I was trying to be so careful, even though I knew the correct usage. Corrected twice. Thank you for pointing that out. The review process is ITS own reward. That is what IT'S all about. ;)

I agree that a red rose is a very powerful symbol and your verses give the reader pause for reflection, Rockie. In both your introduction and in the poem, you mean to write "its" (the possessive) as opposed to "it's" which of course means, "it is." I often make typos and appreciate when others point them out so I can correct them and they do not detract from the message. Thank you for sharing. Love and peace,

Regis

Very prophetic and seems to fit with the national mood of today, waiting, praying for a positive outcome...

Be always safe,

Wow, this is an intensely inspirational poem, I wasn't sure where you were going with this until the last two stanzas made it crystal clear!

Peace, love and light
