Five Minute Friday: The Messenger

It's that time again. Five Minute Friday. I usually look forward to this but this week it snuck up on me and I REALLY struggled with this word! I was just drawing such a blank. Finally I just sat down and wrote something because I had to. I didn't want to miss on FMF and risk breaking a habit I've grown to really enjoy. But I'm not happy at all with what I managed to write today. It feels disjointed and forced. Well, here it is:


The Messenger

He strides purposefully down the dark hall
a mission prompts his step
Sent by his King,
he obeys without question

He goes out with courage
willing to fulfil his task
at all costs

The words he speaks
are not his own
Words of hope

Reactions depend on his words
Will he be killed for a negative word,
honoured for a positive?

He’s tangible evidence of the King’s rule.
Without a name,
he’s simply known as

The Messenger.
