The Coward Poem by Rose Marie Juan-austin

The Coward

Rating: 5.0


He lives an honest life
His heart is pure
And truth never stumbled at his door.

But when evils spread their wings
And the minion of darkness forced their way
He kept himself silent.

When he is called to testify against the devil
He closed his door
Muted himself to his very core.

Such a powerful and meaningful write you have written here Rose Marie. A great and literally soul-searching metaphorical poem that certainly touches many bases and to make one think about his/her attributes or vices. Loved it! Your last verse is glorious to read. A full score and quickly added to my moral or lack of morality and true grit favourites. Thank you Rose Marie for sharing your unique poetry gift.

A beautiful poem indeed. Cowards remain cowards always. They shut the doors when it is time to testify against the devil. Very nicely done. Loved it.

Greatly written poem, unfortunately cowardice is shared among a lot of hypocrites, and they are a majority.

Nothing mars an honest person's character like cowardice. Excellently written and thought provoking.
