Sonnet: Mike 1984 – 2016

Come tell me there is something I might say,
a string of magic words, some fated rhyme,
whereby I might turn back the hands of time,
and usher in a former favored day.

Bring something that will hold my thoughts at bay,
to close the door upon my fevered past.
Some potion to eradicate at last,
the tortured scenes that all my memories fray.

It did not seem too high a price to pay.
A little folding of the hands to sleep,
not knowing my descent would be too deep,
that I’d awake no more to my dismay.

My Lord, although I’ve gone so far astray,
I trust in You to all my fears allay.

About Louis William Rose

He has served as parliamentarian for various organizations. A political philosopher, poet, singer, and writer, his articles have been published on-line and in pro-liberty papers in Florida, Kentucky, Georgia, and Montana. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of North Florida, graduating summa cum laude in 2004, with an additional two years of graduate work in political philosophy. Mr. Rose is an outspoken supporter of the basic rights of man, especially freedom of speech, association, religion, individual rights to personal defense and property, and of republican, constitutional forms of government.
