Poetry – Holy Warriors


Holy Warriors
By: Maranda Russell

Holy warriors
learn a lesson
Their distorted agenda
rightly condemns
one righteous man
setting a fire
beyond their own
narrow audience –
but – to the best
of my knowledge –
this will be
a one-time exception.

    • Poetry can be interpreted many ways, but the original intent behind this piece was to illustrate the times that holy warriors have gotten it wrong and persecuted the wrong people for the wrong reasons. However, I’m not opposed to the idea that those who want to do what’s right need to stand up for it right now, the world certainly needs some heroes. You just have to make sure you are in fact a hero and not a villain masquerading as a hero. Sometimes the line can be so thin.
