Delilah Lulls Samson

Image result for samson and delilah royalty free images

How strong are you, Samson?

Gifted ruler.

Foretold and anointed.

Unbeaten.

Mighty conqueror.

Slayer of soldiers by the hundreds,

Fearsome Destroyer.

Till lulled on her lovely lap,

Where you have no business being,

You sell your soul to the temptress

And Delilah destroys you, Fearsome Destroyer,

With her guile, and her nagging.

And your full permission.

If you falter in a time of trouble,

How small is your strength?

How strong are you, Samson?
