Rozanna.

Rozanna.

A Poem by Paul Bell

Rozanna, bible in her hand
Took me through the dark days
Showed me another way
I hold her hand

Rozanna, praise the lord for me
Set me free
My thoughts were dark from the start
I wanted your soul

Rozanna, your words like you are true
The good book was made for you
The passion in your eyes
The love, there’s no disguise

Rozanna, I tried, glad I failed
You can’t beat God
I know that
Knew from the start

Rozanna, bible in her hand
God in her heart
Making a stand
I watch her, rifle in  hand
God bless Rozanna.

Strong words and thoughts. I liked the way you create understand. Two ways to go. Must decide God or war? Thank you Paul for sharing your powerful poetry.

I'm not sure the bible and rifle should go hand in hand.
But they so often do, so I suppose that is par for the course. And I am not quite sure why you were glad you failed. Dark thoughts? I think most men have those when it comes to women!!!!! But, seriously, I did enjoy your poem. I'll drop by again

They were two different soldiers. One worked for money. The other for freedom.

Lol totally
Bibles and rifles are not a match made in heaven as you so deftly and eloquently show in your poem Paul. The theme is most frightening, Rozanna taking her victim in the name of God. Great form, flow, rhyme, musicality. Put the guns down. Kudos!

They do say god works in mysterious ways.
seems a simple tale on the surface but hints strongly of more ..i am not as adept as DIVYA and do not discern the catch ;(
i am left wondering if she has the rifle or the antagonist ... this is kind of a dark poem with a bright light ..Rozanna! ;)

I knew there had to be a catch somewhere. I was worried...Then it all fell in place. Now I'm feeling better Paul.
