Love the rhythm and meter on this. Good job! Sad ending of a well known Bible incident.:(
This is a great story and though it may be based on a Bible story; it definitely fits many today. In the beginning my mind went to the kids who grew up in Hollywood because a parent was famous. Nice job in writing it in a way many can relate to.

I like how this poem shows Absalom's life and his prideful outlook but also messages the warning that an unbridled arrogant, rebellious outlook can be the destruction of anyone. Good job.

Nice flowing poem and great perspective about Absalom. Thanks for sharing! God bless!
Pleasant, flowing poem about Absalom whom I read about in my morning devotions recently. Very sad ending to a life that held promise. The tree was a Terebinth, sometimes referred to as an oak tree.

A very skilfully-constructed view of Absolom's failure to reach his potential. Well done
