    ©My Judas Tree revisited

    And for not being what I should have been
    they cut my guts out of me
    but not before they made me bleed
    to feed their greed to fill their need
    to see me hang from my Judas tree
    To show the world their costly fee
    To kill my hate to remove the seed
    waiting dormant to spring from within me
    I lived to tell and bit the hand that feeds
    they left me dying in a bed of reeds
    I cannot die I will not leave
    until my vision gives sight to see.

    Very gripping rhyming scheme. The rhyme matched the content as well as the context, and it is beautifully simple. The realization that you have betrayed yourself in the end, but in some way can gain redemption is a powerful thing.

    Graphic illustration of a circumstance I am too well acqauinted with; the upside is that once you've comethrough the fire, you begin to realize the power of your potential, AND the potential of your power.

    In this peice the title jumped out at me ,very good title and the subject matter to match i loved it ,only one thing did you mean hang instead of hand in the 5th line,a bit of a slip but still a great poem

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
