|A magnificent work of poetry. A portrait of faith and strength. It reminds me of the amazing young lady who, while staring down the barrel of a loaded weapon, chose to stand by her faith and proclaim her belief in God with her final words.
La' Guillotine By Demolition
This was a really great read. It is true enough to the history to ground it. The character of the woman is exquisite. It amazes me the way you are able to convey her essence so clearly and so quickly in the lines of a poem.
The imagery, meter, flow, and construction come together seamlessly to form a great experience for the reader.
My favorite part...
And of her guilt there was no doubt.
She walks her Passion Way.
Step by step she climbs the staircase,
Step by step, and she lifts her face.
She looks into my dying eyes,
But in her pride she never cries.
Unless the tears are gay.
She's beauteous in final prayer.
She begs reprieve from Satan’s lair.
She bows her head at God’s own name,
She blesses Him, The Three and Same.
Then bends to meet her God.
Well done is all there is left to say...
