under the lash

Kevin Michael Bloor

Under the lash of their resentment
I sit serene in quiet contentment.
Spurred on by sacred symmetry
my pen pours out pure poetry.

My so-called sin and conscience cruel
condemn me, but I’m no one’s fool.
These monsters, Christ did deem as dross,
and crucified them on His cross!

My path, therefore, is paved with peace.
The Lord has caused the storms to cease.
To hell with feckless accusations
from friends and foes and rude relations!

My pen tells truth, come Hell's high-water.
The sword of God’s good word will slaughter
the slander on those toadies’ tongues,
and stop their sycophantic songs.

Under the lash of their resentment
I sit serene in quiet contentment.
With faith, I fight my foolish fears,
and soldier on, but shed no tears.

    'your own, personal
    faith, is - as you
    wield it, to be
    or will-it, to free
    your own, individuality...;
    if it works for you
    then treasure it
    empower yourself with it
    walk with eyes open
    and heart's, invested
    and you can utilise it, fully...!'
    let the rest, simply
    (more power to you, dear Poet
    utilise your Poetry
    wash yourself free of regret's reins
    free yourself to traverse life, aiming
    for future's awaiting, gifts)
