Transformation of the Heart (Based on the novel, 'The Scarlet Letter, ' By Nathaniel Hawthorne)

Transformation of the Heart

Roger Primm of seasons before was a scholarly man,
who’s kindness poured.

A doctor by trade, a brain was he,
but there were little things he failed to see.

Hester, Roger’s wife who he vividly ignored,
grew to hate him, she made him abhorred.

Roger wanted attention when she gave him none,
he wanted nourishment when Hester wanted to run.

Roger sent Hester to live in the new world,
hoping she’d start a home, when Chaos unfurled.

Lust was her temptation. Adultery was her sin.
When Roger never showed this is what she indulged in.

A couple years later when Roger came back to the world,
Hester, his wife, wife was on the scaffold.

From this time on, his life was changed.
Turning from God, he became cold and deranged.

Determined to find the man who slept with his wife, his heart grew hard, Vengeance became his life.
The man that Roger lived before, was gone, deceased, existed no more.
