Trying to guess – are you? The PPs stand for them Perfectly Possessed When you do good – they frown When you are honest – they drown See those signs of jealousy in their eyes Right when you are supremely prized And when you stand at the tip of fame They cruelly deflect and try to defame No power at all in their intentions Yet they show another side of pretension Listen to their word not Ignore their pull of wrongful deceit Heed not their doings; unjust and unkind For before your very eyes see them unwind Into their cobwebs of hatred and misalign. Stay your lovable self and emit your wondrous shine Pray for them for their time is in terrible decline See all those red flags fall For your rise is nigh, Belonging right in front of them all!
Did you know that one third of the Old Testament is poetry? Psalms, Proverbs, and Lamentations are entirely poetic in form. Most of Job and portions of Ecclesiastes are poetic, while the prose narratives in the books of Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, to name a few, contain substantial poetic sections.
I find the Bible to be resourceful, serving as a guide giving a basic outline towards life and how to live it. No wonder it is the best-selling book of all time!
In this book, I have taken some famous quotes and given them a poetic spin of my own, with my personal interpretation of it.
Adding another edge to it, I have chosen to use “Hebrew poetry” instead of traditional English poetry. In Hebrew poetry, rhyme is not as important as the sound of the words. It also uses figurative language and parallelism; where the same idea is stated in different ways.
A great way to revisit scripture!
