Chose Your Weapon

Days of old
A glove thrown down
Offense on hold
ĎTil next dawn
Dewy grass
The battleground
Blades of steal
Flash around
Death comes

Two-edged
Parrying itís prey
Drawing Blood
Winning the day
Hollow victory
As life seeps away

Small child
Spilled milk
Adult wild
Stained silk
Tongue lashes
Out of control
Child heart crushed
Turning cold
To mother love

Two-edged
Parrying itís prey
Drawing Blood
Winning the day
Hollow victory
As life seeps away

Black Book
Opens up
Child of God
Sees the love
Written in red
For all to receive
Bowed head
Penitent tears
Wash away guilt

Two-edged
Sharper than steal
Holy Spirit
Breath is real
Dividing flesh
From life divine

Linen paper
stained with tears
Contrite words
conquered fear
Forgiveness sought
For words of death
Spoken over
Her child

Two-edged
Sharper than steal
Holy Spirit
Breath is real
Dividing flesh
From life divine

Written words
Of life received
Melting hardened
Heart of grief
Releasing pain
Child now grown
Chooses forgiveness
Grabs the phone

Two-edged
Double blessing
Words of life
Carry releasing
Power to change
Any condition

Black Book
Letters of love
Way of life
For all to come
To healing water
Cleansing flood

I enjoyed the way this poem was written. I got the message.

Very powerful words.
Brenda Shipman04/18/10
Loved the wonderful progression of thought and truth. Two minor glitches: "Chose" should be "choose", and "steal" should be "steel." Small things in light of how very BIG this poem is in its depth. Good job!

I love your title and the poem is lovely. The typos I noticed have been mentioned already, so I'll say simply: well done!
