A Flaming Doubt

Updated on February 15, 2015

Seen A Flaming Doubt Rise


but drained,

he turned a glinting eye,

almost with a hint of fascination,

at first he dared not try,

then he reached out

with all the piled up frustration,

his spirit would protest in a shout,

as he grasped his captor by the neck,

his captor leaned back,

not expecting the attack,


glared without fear,

with rifle in hand,

knew he had total command,

actually firing it,

common sense would sit,

causing a man’s demise,

but for the first time

in his criminal life,

seen a flaming doubt rise,

a sinner could never be a winner,

his body would shimmer

and his emotions would simmer,

as his superiority grew thinner.
