Samson III

Based in part on the Book of Judges:

Toshi Farms - Northern Light On A Weeping Willow

Samson III
by Michael Romani

III

A judge to this world would arise
As deliverer of prophecy advised
Vengeance born to be God's hands
And take back the Promised Lands

He was unlike others; meant for more
But, Samson himself was not so sure
As much as he sought his people's release
What he wished for more was a just peace

Nazirite vows had all been kept
And still he watched as his people wept
Feeling as though they had been forsaken
Samson felt certain his all had been taken

And God, it seemed, withheld the people's desire
While Samson tripped across this ensnaring wire
Trapping himself in questions of clouded doubt
He was mystified so to how God's will would work out
