Absalom, Beautiful,Bold, Brazen but Base

Post  Fenny West on Wed 21 Nov 2007, 9:39 pm










Absalom, beautiful, bold, brazen but base,

Deceived by looks, resorted to usurping the throne

With wrong motives pleaded their case

Longed to make David’s Kingdom his own



‘I will ascend to the top, to the great tower’

He said, like Satan; plotted little by little

Booted his father away because of hunger for power

Stole the heart of the people who were fickle



On the day of battle his beauty betrayed him

His strength became his weakness and waterloo

He lost his life, ambition and all the dream

Those who were deceived were left high and dry too



"Oh, my son Absalom, my son! would God

I had died for thee!" was David’s lament.

Beloved, even when disdained his word.

His love for him went to a great extent.







Something to think about

Thank you Fenny for such a beautiful poem. I must thank and praise God for the blessing of poetry He has given you for His honor and glory and I thank God for the way He uses you to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ through it.

God bless you and your family

Really a nice poem and I watched the movie King Solomon after reading your poem. It inspired me so much that I had to watch the movie.

God bless you
